Identifying a Disease on an Apricot Tree?

I have an apricot tree that has a gooey looking substance ozzing out of the stems. Usually it kills the leaves and the tree struggles to produce fruit. Is it fungus or a type of insect that effects it?

You may have more than one disease/insect.
i would recommend you discuss this with your local agriculture agency as they will be familiar with all of this.
Here are a couple of sites that have excellent disease control information:

It is called bacterial canker. There is no treatment for existing cases. Nitrogen fertilizer and frequent light watering will prevent it in other trees
