Question From: D. Mellace - NEW JERSEY
Q: I would like to plant a Cherokee Red Dogwood in a location where another 30 year old dogwood recently died due to anthracnose. Will the fungus possibly spread (from the ground) to the new tree?
Anthracnose is a soil-borne disease so I would not replace the tree with another dogwood. Choose another specie. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
