What you mean dogwood tree?

I agree with @Victoria as it can be possible that some dogwood are flowering trees and not all.

Answer is based on first sentence because it says that all the trees are flowering trees.

Can anyone explain through Venn diagrams please?

Dogwood is not distributed in the premises. How come it is distributed in the conclusion?

2nd sentence is not used in generating a conclusion.

As per rules of syllogism, if one statement is particular, answer has to be particular only.

This question is totally based on 1st Sentence that.

All the trees in the park are flowering trees.

And the 2nd sentence is Dogwoods which also in the park I mean it is also counted in the All trees in the park I think you got my point.
