Cedar Trees
Q.

Why is sap dripping from my cedar’s needles?

Zone Sacramento Valley, CA | Gardener Eve added on June 8, 2015 | Answered

My Atlas cedar is dripping lots of sap from its needles. The sap is clear and shiny and viscous. It oozes down the needles and drips onto the paving below. I do not see any cankers or sap flowing on the trunk. Thank you!

This is a normal process for the tree in most cases.
Warmer weather in spring can be the cause.
Inspect the tree to determine if there could be any of the other causes listed in the link below.
