What is happening to my plum tree #737545

Asked January 29, 2021, 2:46 AM EST

I was pruning my plum tree and noticed this odd peeling bark on a couple of branches. What is going on? Is it diseased or damaged?

Marion County Oregon

Thank you for your question. The tree would appear to be reacting to environmental issues, and should be treated as described in this Extension article: http://plantclinic.cornell.edu/factsheets/barksplitting.pdf I hope this is helpful. Good luck!
