My Royal Poinciana tree has begun leaking a sticky, sweet sap, in earnest. It is healthy, or I thought it was, and it is beautiful. It is about 6 years old. The branch that is leaking has another branch above it, sitting on it. Could the pressure from the branch sitting on it cause it distress? Inasmuch as it would leak sap?
This tree has never leaked sap before, other than when I have pruned a branch - then I put the black "repair" on it and it is done. Thanks for your quick answer because it is leaking to beat the band! I will be very upset if bugs or something like that have caused this. HELP!!!
