Best Answer

It was not made of the dogwood, since no dogwood has ever been reported to have grown in the Middle East. Likely it was made of cedar or cypress, both of which are indigenous to that area. The myth of the dogwood was originated in Europe or even perhaps the early days of the United States. There is absolutely no historical evidence that the dogwood tree ever grew straight and tall as the legend would have us believe.
