Q.I Would Like Advice On How To Care For A Sick Almond Tree.

Zone Fairfield, California | Anonymous added on July 24, 2021 | Answered

I have a beautiful almond tree in the backyard of a house I am renting. Part of the tree has died back this year and I see that it is oozing sap. It looks like a pest may have drilled holes (maybe a woodpecker). The person that owns the house is not interested in caring for the tree. What can I do to care for this tree? I have attached photos.
