Prunus cherry tree with a bark problem

Zone Cirencester, Gloucestershire | irvingdnn added on May 5, 2015 | Answered

The bark has a noticeable split in its trunk which has been there for a number of years. The split seems to be fairly static. Enclosed are some images. Are you able to comment on the possible problem? Please see images attached.

I am going to refer you to a very excellent article on bark splitting from Cornell University which discusses the possible reasons this occurred (various environmental factors).
