Gummosis - Sit Spot #632 - October 20, 2020

Gummosis is sap leaking from a break in tree bark. In this case it is from a Black Cherry and there were numerous places where this was happening on one of the trees on our property. It is pretty to look at but means that the tree has a problem. Probably a canker of some sort that needs to be removed in order to save the tree.

I've never heard of this! Cool. I mean, not for the tree, but nature is so interesting.
