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.

It does indeed get everywhere. Here is an article for removing sap that you may find helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/tgen/how-to-remove-tree-sap.htm
