Inspect recently planted trees for frost cracks
Called "frost cracks
,'' the damage usually appears on the southwest face of young trees.
Specifically, this study (1) examines the critical hydro-logic and landscape factors that are important in sustaining ponds through variable short-term fluctuating weather conditions and possibly long-term climatic shifts; (2) examines the relative importance of lateral water sources (e.g., meltwater from late-lying snowbeds, streams, and other linear waterways, such as frost cracks) in the maintenance and the survival of these polar desert ponds; and (3) assesses the role played by climate (radiation, temperature, precipitation), as opposed to the landscape setting, in the hydrology and sustainability of these polar desert ponds.
Frost cracks are common in the coastal area, often running from the hill-slope into the coastal zone and ranging in size from minor undulations to deep depressions.

The best examples of walnuts growing on the Prairies are in the Morden and Portage la Prairie areas; yet these trees have evidence of frost cracks
But God's become forgetful, we've all noticed the change; frost cracks
the folding husks binds the soil where we planted marigolds; my daughter paints in crimson streaks alef, akimbo, unimaged: it says nothing because the sound it says is invisible.
are splits in the radial-longitudinal plane of a stem caused by "frost shrinkage," which occurs when the outer layer of a tree is colder and contracts faster than the core (Kubler, 1983, 1987).
A: The crack in the bark is likely a "frost crack
." These cracks form, especially in young trees with thin bark, when the sun warms the sap while the tree is still mostly frozen.
