Is there a way to prevent freshly cut pine boughs from leaking sap?

I recently read that pine cones can be baked for a short time at low temp to harden the resin and prevent them from leaking. Could probably do the same thing w/the boughs. (12/13/2006)

I would be leery of putting the boughs in an oven! Your bough is going to dry up pretty quickly and not be pretty. I usually take small pieces of aluminum foil and wrap it around, the end of the bough. (12/17/2006)

Sticking your pine boughs in the oven would be great if you wanted to roast marshmallows on the fire it would create, but I'm sure most of you wouldn't enjoy burning down your house. (01/06/2009)
