Frost Cracks

What's "Cracking" in the yard and woods?

Have you ever heard a loud bang or pop when you're outside in the winter?  It might have been a tree shivering during the brutally cold winter.  The past several weeks have been very cold and it doesn’t look like it’s going to get warm and stay warm anytime soon.  The very low cold temperatures that we experience during winter months can cause trees to crack.  This is called frost cracking.
