Hey guys, just looking ahead here and seeing if this is a fungus or stress on the trunk or if anything at all I should be concerned with. A little background, this tree is over 200 feet tall, don't know what kind it is but its on the property line and the neighbor though she was going to get one up and make it fall our way. She cut all the branches off going in her direction right against the trunk. The only branch left was one great big limb that extended out 75 feet and was just about to our house so we had it cut, left the rest because its on her and we've took care of enough of her tree's on the property line. This was 2010 and now the only thing left is the main trunk of the tree which goes straight up and then leans in her direction so its hers. Now, I'm noticing a white colorerd area on the bark which I'm just curious as to what it is. From the first photo you can see it from a distance just at the top of the privacy fence This just gives an idea how tall the tree is And two pics of the bark up close and closer Could this be stress on the trunk from both parties cutting limbs off and now causing more weight on the trunk then it can handle? Making it where it will eventually give and fall?
