Q.What Is Wrong With My Mesquite Tree When The Bark Starts Separating And Exposing The Underlying Wood?

Zone Chandller, Az | Lauraphx added on November 3, 2023 | Answered

This is an old tree in my parents yard that hasn’t been well cared for. Branches broken under their own weight and left in place, etc- hasn’t grown tall as a result- just thick with much dead wood.

This is quite normal for the tree. All of these symptoms indicate that a very heavy pruning is in order.
