Q.What Is This On My Weeping Cherry Tree?
Is this amber colored “glop” on my weeping cherry tree a disease, fungus or bugs? What can I do to treat the tree. Grafted tree about 6 inch circumference. Planted in my garden about 6 or 7 years ago after purchasing it when it was probably 3 to 4″ circumference.
