Rootstock bark split
« on: June 14, 2021, 10:34:28 PM »
Hey everyone I just noticed yesterday (not sure how I hadnít seen this before, guess I was distracted by the scale Iím battling) that my rootstock bark split or had damage or something happened to it, picture attached. The outermost layer of bark was kinda soft and peely. I have a feeling itís from the sprinklers but maybe itís just growing and could be normal. Your help is appreciated!

It is healing over nicely.  Keep an eye on it.

The damage looks to have been caused by Phytophthora infection.   You can look the disease up on the internet.
