Our laburnum tree is at least 30+ years old. It is growing in a sunny position and has never been pruned since we moved here 24 years ago. Today we have noticed cracks have appeared down its trunk. Is this something to worry about?

A photograph would be helpful, but do you mean actually in the trunk, or just in the bark?

Exactly. I've got some cut stems from a garden clearance, and the outer bark is split, but the wood is sound. The tree was perfectly healthy. Phil J
