I've had an apple tree mostly die last winter, and I doubt it will fully recover. It was growing well, in some of my better soil, a few years old but not yet making fruit, a known hardy variety on a possibly not as hardy rootstock. I see now it has a vertical crack in the trunk which isn't fresh and I suspect happened in a previous bitter winter.
Isn't this supposed to kill a tree right away? How many years can a tree last with this damage? Did it suffer as much damage from the too mild 2015-16 winter?
