Q. How do you heal a split truck?

My weeping cherry tree has a few splits in the trunk about half way up. The bark is peeling back and the splits are approx. 1/2 inch deep. It looks like a small circle web in in one of the splits and I'm worried I might has a bug problem.


I was able to find information from the Cornell Plant Clinic that I think you'll find helpful on your cherry tree's bark splitting condition, and how to manage it.  

If you see insects around or in the splits, I would suggest that you contact a certified arborist in your area.

Good luck.
