Q. Is something wrong with my Pink Flowering 10 year old Dogwood Tree?

Any advice to care for the tree is greatly appreciated.The leaves are turning yellow and purple dropping and with a little shake fall off.

Answer

It sounds as if the tree may have Spot Anthracnose which is described in a USDA brochure on Growing and Maintaining Dogwoods.  Here is a link:

You might also want to check with the Cooperative Extensive Service which is located at  675 Sansom Street. The phone number is 215-471-2200, and the email address is PhiladelphiaExt@psu.edu. Good luck.
