Japanese Lilac

Ciocchetti added on October 14, 2017 | Answered

I planted a Japanese lilac tree about a year ago and it’s loosing the bark at the base of the tree. The tree looks healthy and is about 8 ft high. Is this a concern and should I do anything about it ? Pictures attached

I would chalk this up to being environmental. This is normal and not usually a cause for concern unless you are seeing other symptoms. This is most usually caused by really dry weather followed by really wet weather.
