RE: Pagoda dogwood

Marge and all,
It is a small tree, not much investment on my part. First year had
leaves, have not seen one since that winter. Last fall I was going to
pull it out but didn't get to it for one reason or another. I was
shocked when it was still alive this spring, but again, no nothing in
the way of foliage. I plan on checking out the root system when I
finally pull it out and see if I can determine something... probably
not, but will try. I would like a tree there!
