Hi Deb, if the tree is otherwise healthy then the splitting of bark may be a result of a fast growth spurt (is it a young tree?) and is natural and nothing to worry about. If it shows other signs of deterioration then you may need to look closer for other problems.

Was it exposed to hot afternoon sun? My young pecans looked like this soon after they were planted.

I coated the trunks with white paint. You can also wrap newspaper loosely round them for protection. That is, if it is sun damage.

The damage appears to be from long ago that it is hard to find a cause. There is no further risk of sun damage with all the shade there now. The wood will possibly rot and the tree fall down. You can probably get a few more years out of it but may need to prop it up with some sticks of wood.
