I have used flowering Dogwood to make selfbows/longbows. It is strong (medium density) .73-.75 SG. (specific gravity) similar to Hickory but non ring-porous. I have a beautiful flowering Dogwood on my property that would make a great bow (nice clean strait grain trunk) but I would never cut it down as it’s the only one we have on our property.
