Once pine tree sap has harden on a surface it is extremely difficult to remove. Only way I can think of is to try and remove as much as you can with a razor blade and then sand the remainder. When pine tree sap first falls on a surface it is soft and that is the best time to wipe it up. Never park a car under a pine tree when the sap is flowing.
WD 40 won't work for pine sap.Strange as it seems DEEP WOODS OFF will remove pine sap from painted surfaces. It is the only thing that worked for my wife's car.
Unless your deck has a good finish; I would hesitate to use an oily product to remove it. You will end up with "wet" looking spots.
I think I would use a paint scraper, then lightly sand it. If your deck is stained, I would use the paint scraper, but be very careful not to scratch into the surface of the wood. If your deck is unsealed; I would lightly sand the entire surface and seal it, either with a transparent product, or use a stain. If you don't at least seal it, you'll really regret it in a year or two!
Thank you for all your suggestions. I've tried numerous ways - even the miracle "Goo Gone". I guess sanding will be what I'll wind up doing. Thanks again.
When I got back from visiting my boys who live in the pine country I had pine sap all over my car. When I got back I took a bucket of warm water and Dawn Dish Soap and a soft brush. First I soaked it waited a minute or two and the used the wet soft brush and it came right off.
How do I remove maple tree sap from a wooden painted deck?
How do I remove tree sap (white line tree) from a pressure treated wood deck. Sap is dry.
Goo Gone worked great on my cars. I tested it in an inconspicuous area, and it didn't damage the paint. So I used it successfully on hood and top of car. If you have a large lump of sap, excess can be scraped of with a credit card before applying Goo Gone.

How do I remove pine sap from my wood deck?
Dawn dish detergent, and here is my reasoning. My black Lab lays under our pine tree and the sap falls off onto his back, not to mention how much he lays in it. I pour Dawn dish detergent directly on the sap and rub it for a few seconds then rinse the area and it is always gone! Dawn dish detergent is what they use to get oil out of the wildlife when there has been an oil spill. I would pour it directly on the sap then scrub it with a soft bristle brush and rinse. Please let me know how it works! Good luck!
