Split Redbud tree trunk

We moved into a new home in Pittsboro NC and the Redbud tree in front of house has a split trunk. Should we treat it somehow or leave it alone.

flowering cherry tree looks dead

Our beautiful flowering cherry tree's leaves which bloomed nicely this spring have turned "dead-looking" brown within three weeks. When I cut into the branches they appear alive. The leaves do not appear to have any splotches that might indicate a fungus.In those 3 weeks we received a lot of rain. Pictures are below. Do you have any idea as to the cause and what should we do about it. Thank you, Tom Kinert

I have tomato seeds that I purchased from a reputable seed company and had great success with them.I saved some of original seeds in an air tite container and stored in the crisper drawer of my fridge.My question is will the seeds produce plants as healthy and strong as last year.Also how far apart should I start seeds for a second planting.
Thank you
Joe Labbate
