large amount of sap during winter pruning bad?
I am in zone 7a and I just pruned a large japanese maple in the yard today. The tree is 15 to 20 feet tall with that wide of a canopy and I pruned off three low branches. They go from 2 inches to 3 inches in diameter. I noticed sap dripping down the wound even though they are supposed to be dormant right now. Should I worry about my tree??
