something is wrong with the trunk of my Kwanza flowering cherry tree
Hello, The trunk looks damaged, however the tree is growing and the leaves look good. There are ants on the trunk of the tree. I planted the Kwanza flowering cherry tree March 2019. Could you please tell me what you think it is? Thank you for your help. Kathy
