Why do all the dogwoods I plant die?

Our native white dogwood is found naturally underneath taller shade trees and performs best when it has light shade from the hot afternoon sun.  Dogwood borers are much more prone to attack trees planted in the sun because the trees are usually stressed and these insects prefer to lay their eggs in warm and sunny spots.  Soil conditions also affect dogwoods, as they prefer a richer, well drained soil rather than the compacted clay most of us have in our yards.
