Tabebuia tree trunk developing splits

    1 responses

rebeccaper starts with ...
Hi. I planted a young tabebuia palmeri about 6 months ago. It’s very healthy and is around 5.5 feet tall. I’ve noticed the trunk and branches are starting to crack, the cracks in the trunk are quite deep. Is the tree likely to die as a result of this and what can I do to protect from further cracks or disease?

The mature bark of this tree tends to be smooth, so it does sound like some sort of problem. I'm not an expert but I would suggest painting it with a copper solution in case it is fungal. A plant's health starts in the soil, so make sure it is adequately mulched and fed. Mulch also helps prevent splash that may spread fungal problems.
