I have a beautiful Kashmir Deodar Cedar. I just notice that a portion of the trunk has about a 2 inch split oozing clear sap. Is this a concern? As always thank you for you help.
A split oozing resin is never good, but how bad is a matter of proportion. If on a 1 foot tree, yipes. If on a 30 foot tree, not so bad. Any pix?
Too dark for a pic now but the tree is about 16 feet in height. Any idea of what caused this and what may happen? Thanks.
any significant weather blow thru??
split vertically or horizontally???
where are you????
looking forward to pic
Thanks for the input. I've attached a photo and maybe am making a big deal out of nothing. I may have mistaken the sap for a split but I am attaching a pic to be sure. Next post, as I can only post 1 photo, will post a pic of the tree. Thanks again for all the help. G
Here is a picture of the tree. Thanks again.
It looks to me like there was just a small wound from which the sap is draining down.
This sap is a defense mechanism to prevent disease from entering the wound. Doesn't look too bad to me..
Ditto to Sam, except it is resin (a natural wound sealant), not sap.
Phew and thanks everyone. Have a great weekend and holiday season. G
