Nectarine Tree Sap

Anonymous added on January 10, 2014 | Answered

I have a 3-year old nectarine tree that is now starting to ooze sap. Does that mean that it is starting to die? Can anything be done? We live in a redwood forest and the tree receives somewhat limited sun. It fruited really well the first year. Last year we got no fruit. The trunk is about 4 inches. I appreciate you taking the time to help.

This needs to be addressed, but should not need any chemicals to treat it. Here is more info that will help:
