Do dogwood trees have invasive roots?
Root Causes Dogwood trees are dependent on surface moisture because root networks don't penetrate to water reserves that may lie deeper beneath the slightly acidic well-draining soil they prefer. Landscape dogwoods grown in full sun may need to be watered daily.
