Why Plant A Dogwood Tree?

*To keep our iconic dogwood trails blooming for years to come! The average life span of a dogwood in an urban setting is 25 years; and up to 50 in a rural setting. The first Dogwood Trail was planted in 1955. With a dogwood trees’ average life span of 25 years in an urban setting and up to 50 in a native setting, it is important to plant for the future.

*Dogwood trees offer 4 seasons of interest: spring bloom, summer shade, crimson fall color and winter berries for wildlife. The berries provide food for American Cardinals along with over 35 species of birds.

*Spring flowers provide nectar to pollinators including bees and spring azure butterflies

*Planting trees increases property values by providing beauty, decreasing utility costs by providing shade and improving air quality
