Many small injuries cause trees to ooze sap, usually in small quantities. This one, though, is weeping from top to bottom.

A cascade of white, sticky sap.

I'm wondering what caused this; a major injury far above, too far for me to see it? A flock of enthusiastic sapsuckers, making holes all the way down?

Poor tree doesn't look happy!


Muchas veces una trauma pequeña les hace llorar savia a los árboles. Normalmente, se limita a la región del daño hecho. Pero este pobre árbol llora desde arriba entre las ramas, hasta la raiz.

Me pregunto que lo habrá causado; ¿una herida grande, allá arriba entre las ramas, fuera del alcance de mi vista? ¿O una bandada de pájaros chupasavias, haciendo sus pocitos a todo el largo del tronco?

El pobre árbol parece estar triste.

I'm having to moderate all comments because Blogger seems to have a problem notifying me. Sorry about that. I will review them several times daily, though, until this issue is fixed.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
