Frost Crack In Tree Stumps
If you’ve ever seen vertical cracks in your tree’s trunk before, this is known as “Frost Crack.” It’s something that occurs due to changes between hot and cold temperatures during the winter.
It’s only natural and it involves the bark in your tree expanding and contracting based on the temperature. This will obviously cause some sort of cracking to occur.
The truth is, there really is no realistic way to fix frost crack. The advice we would give you is to wait it out till the Springtime. This is a naturally occurring phenomenon and no matter what anyone tells you, it’s not something that can be healed by an arborist. The best we can do is give you advice on how to prevent it from occurring.
