In general, when does sap start to run and is that a good time to fertilize them? Thanks for your help.

As the weather warms, sap in trees "runs". The best time to fertilize is when new growth is visible. Depending on the variety of plant, new growth will be leaves and/or blooms. Just as there are "morning" people and "evening" people, some plants leave dormancy sooner than others.
