Patrick you still did not possitive ID them as Cornus florida. Do you have
two types of buds on your tree that looks like this?
Yes, that is it. I even found the original information tag that was
attached to the tree.
Cornus florida rubra
With our strange winter, this tree currently has a flower nearly fully
formed and has many buds already cracked open.
I will take some pictures of buds on Cornus florida and you can let us know
if they match yours. I have some pictures now but they are of buds just
forming. They would look different than that now. Maybe I will scan some

Dogwoods in their natural habitat are generally not prone to disease
unless there are cultured areas nearby which have infected trees.
People don't know how to plant trees properly and then wonder why
their tree dies ten years or less later.
