Q.Split Tree

Zone Mason Ill 62443 | Anonymous added on January 11, 2023 | Answered

I have a crimson maple tree that has a 5 ft long split in the trunk about 8 ft from ground about 1/4 inch open. It shows no signs of being struck by lightning. Looked just perfect when leaves were on. Tree is about 25 ft tall.
