Dieing crapapple tree

Asked June 23, 2019, 7:52 PM EDT

I have a 50 + year old crapapple tree in my yard. This year as we have lost several big branches that were completely dead. We have removed the dead branches. However the bark is falling off, and the trunk is starting to split. Any hope for this tree.
Thanks
