I had an apricot which had a similar cracking, and weeping. One half of the tree died, and we cut it out. The rest looked sick for a long time. We eventually cut the lot down this year after a lot of prevaricating. I suspect yours will never be right. I would take it out now.

Anything that grows to 8m high could get out of hand. It's also likely to be too big a tree to be close to the house unless you have a really large garden.

Regular tetanus boosters are essential for all gardeners,even if they usually wear gloves.

A lot of immunizations given in childhood wear off as you get older.I have just had a polio,tetanus,and diphtheria booster.
