Dogwood is a shrub so it probably does bud back. But as with a lot of shrubs it might bud back at the roots or low on the trunk.

How do you recognise a dogwood, by its bark, sorry could not help myself  lol!

Now that's funny!

Here in the states I've only seen them as tree's. I have several growing in my natural area's. I may just cut one back and see what happens.

Yes. In North Carolina, dogwoods are small trees. He's probably talking about Cornus florida, which is the most common and is native.

I'm afraid I have NO idea how they behave in pots.

Dogwoods do backbud, but they are not the easiest tree to collect since the wood is very dense and you don't typically get any fine roots. They also (referring to cornus florida) do not ramify very well. Little to no taper. But the bark is awesome and the flowers (actually bracts, the flowers are inconspicuous) are stunning. I collected a roughleaf dogwood (cornus drummondii) this past year. These have more conspicuous flowers and better ramification potential, but are not as elegant a species as florida.

Thank you all.

When would be the best time to cut it back? Since it's on my property, I'll cut it back and leave it in the ground for a few years to recover.

Thanks again,

You can cut/chop now. Just be sure to seal the cuts.

FYI,
I collected a 3-5 year old seedling, Cornus florida, a couple of years ago, and have been growing it in a 6" bulb pan, I wired and pruned it and spent the entire growing season picking/rubbing off new buds, up and down the trunk. I have also seen older specimens producing many buds on old wood. I would say they do bud back  Very Happy
