Palo Verde tree In Phx, AZ

Asked October 5, 2018, 4:21 PM EDT

My nature Palo Verde tree broke a major limb in a storm. I noticed that the bark had split and turned yellow. Also all of the previously trimmed areas are now black. There is rough bark on my tree but I was told this is normal? Now my other Palo Verde next to it is starting the same symptoms. Appreciate your help. Cheryl
