How Do I Save My Tree?

My tree looks like it is dying. Where its branches connect to the trunk, sap comes out. Recently some branches have fallen, not just by the winds.
Also I found ants crawling around, and the tree has some crevices. No one wants to save it and I am the only one who does because I climb it. It’s been there my whole life and I am asking what should I do before someone decides to cut it down. I will cry if I hear “timber”.
