Subject: [nafex] split bark
I have several 5-6 year old semi dwarf apple trees in my
apparently developed vertical splits in their bark which seem
getting worse as the season progresses. The splits range
inches long and the bark has curled back around the trunks
the under layer.
Two questions: What do I do to cure/preserve
the tree? and What
caused it so I can prevent it from happening
