Q.My 10+ Year Old Pink Tabebuia Tree Trunk Is Splitting In Areas On The Main Trunk. Is This Serious To The Tree?

Starting with about a 5 inch split, it has now increased to about 2ft towards the bottom of the main trunk. There are some other places with smaller splits that I am concerned about. I grew this tree from seed and she’s approximately 35ft high! We’ve had beautiful blooms in Feb & March. Would hate to loose it:(

Unfortunately, your photos did not come through. I am unable to see the extent of the damage. If there seems to be no other damage, then it may be due to uneven watering. If this is the case, then there is not much that you will need to do, other than make sure that the tree does not dry out, completely.
