sisso tree is peeling bark

My sisso tree is peeling some bark. Someone told me that I have been watering it too much. I had the time set for 40 min. twice a day, 7 days a week, so I cut back to 3 times per week for 30 minutes. Could that be the reason that the tree was getting too much water?

The Sissoo tree does well in the desert areas because it is dry
an established tree should not be watered at all during the winter or maybe once or twice at the most. During the summer water an established tree once a month deeply.
The Sissoo is quite drought tollerent and does not like a lot of water.
