Oct 08, Bringing back a post from 10 yrs ago, I have a Magnolia with major splits in the bark on the trunk and branches. Bark split falling off magnolia tree splits appeared this Spring. Photos attached. It gets pruned once a year but puts on a lot of foliage growth each year since we had a nearby Spruce tree removed.
It also has a good sprinkler system providing water through the summer. Bark splitting can occur in response to various environmental factors at different times of the year. Splits can occur on the trunk of the tree as well as on branches. Trees which are most susceptible to this type of injury are those which are thin-barked, such as certain fruit trees.

Peeling bark caused by this disease is accompanied by yellowing and wilting leaves and dying branches.
These trees are hardy and showy trees that thrive in well-drained locations with full sunlight.
May 18, I have noticed several spots on the trunk of the tree where the bark appears to be pulling away and falling off. There are also areas toward the base of the tree where the roots start to spread that do not appear ideal.
However, I am not at all sure whether this is normal for a magnolia or not.
