Hello,
I appreciate if you can help me know why my Avocado Hass tree branches are broken up showing white powder as per attached in the first picture. And how I can solve this problem?
Also if you can help me to know why the trunk tree wood has cracks in it and how to solve the problem?
Thank you for your consideration and help,

I am not familiar enough with avocado problems. It is possible you have a canker disease, but there are several and someone who is qualified will need to test it. I would suggest taking samples to a local plant pathologist or horticulturist for assistance.

Thank you very much for your help. I guess i will take samples to a pathologist to test it and know what is the problem.
