Plant Identification


tysmom added on March 23, 2017 | Answered

My son bought a house that has 2 trees in the yard. They sort of look like evergreens with small balls that fall to the ground and they leak sap everywhere - on the swing set, the deck, and the trampoline. It will not wash off. They are good shade, but the roots stick above the ground in numerous places, kinda like knots. We hit them with the lawn mower. Any guess as to what kind they might be and what we should o with them?
