Q.Strawberry Tree Bark

Zone 8B | ArturoJacinto added on July 27, 2011 | Answered

Just had a Strawberry Tree put in my front yard in a 36″ box. Tree is about 15′ tall and the dark bark is missing in the first 10′ and starts up again where it branches. Should I be concerned outside of being miffed that it’s missing some beautiful color and texture. The tree is perfect in size and looks very healthy otherwise and will be a “keeper” absent adverse information provided.

Wow, what a beautiful tree, I looked it up! The only reference I could find that concerns missing bark, seems to be from frost damage. I'm not sure if that's a real issue in your planting zone. I would suggest you contact your local extension office (found under gov't in the phone book) for additional help on why that is happening.
