Any idea why so many dogwood trees in the area are dying?
According to The Land Steward website http://www.landsteward.org, flowering dogwood trees are dying from anthracnose, a disease caused by a fungus.
According to the website, “the first sign of infection can often be seen on the leaves, where you might see tan spots that develop purple rims. Leaves may also have necrotic veins and leaf margins, and large necrotic blotches.
