Apple tree peeling its bark
We have a mature apple tree in our garden (not sure how old) but trunk is fairly hugh... We had a really good crop of apple in 2011, last year it had flowers and when we had a late frost it killed it all and this year not a single flower or leaf has came out. Instead the bark of the apple tree is peeling and it is showing red coloue where the bark has peeled off.
I am sure this is now dead apple tree biut can anyone tell me what went wrong? Can i plant a wisteria underneath and used the tree as its climbing frame? or there is problem wiht the soil??
