Douglas Fir

Anonymous added on July 24, 2015 | Answered

I live in Portland, Oregon and have many Douglas Fir trees on my property. I have a Douglas Fir that is flowing sap year round. Also, on other Douglas Firs, the bark is opening up so that you see the trunk inside. Is this something that I should worry about?

    Though sap oozing from a tree can be normal it also can indicate a more serious issue.
    Here are a few links for you.
    You may want to consult an arborist t determine the health of the trees.
