Hardiness Zone: 8b
By Dennis from York, SC
Pine trees are known for producing a lot of sap, especially in the spring and early summer. If the bark surface is scratched or harmed, sap will flow to the area to heal the wound. Sometimes, the sap will flow for a while before it covers the area. This large mass of sap can be unsightly on a tree, although it is not harmful to the tree itself. You can remove it safely without causing any damage to the pine tree trunk. Good luck.
