Yes, this is normal. While Sugar Maples are the most famous tree for running sap this time of year, almost all trees have increased sap production at this time of year. If the trees are trimmed ot otherwise cut, the sap will ooze some out of the wounds. It does not harm the tree though to lose this sap.
