Pine Tree Was Trimmed and Now Drips Sap

Anonymous added on June 15, 2015 | Answered

I've owned a condo for 25 yrs and recently a pine tree was trimmed in the complex and sap is now dripping on to my patio. This renders it unusable. I am so stressed. Is there anything that can be done, perhaps chop the limb or limbs back further so that it does not drip on my patio? Thank you.

Other than pruning away the pine branches that are causing the problem, there is little you can do to prevent tree sap from occurring. This is simply a natural thing--though I feel ya. It does indeed get everywhere. Here is an article for removing sap that you may find helpful:
