The temps got up to 69F Monday and yesterday and didn't get below 62F, so the elm out front thought it was spring.

Seems early for the sap to to be running but does make a great photo. Recommend you keep the tree as it will give the woodpeckers someplace to eat other than the sides of your house.

No need to worry, Cathy. This elm did the same thing last year. If the tree is healthy, it will repair the damage and continue to grow. If not, we will replace it with a flowering fruit tree.

Neat picture! Thanks JC. Tree trunks are beautiful but I'm sorry this tree is losing it's sap.

It's different, Jan and if I wasn't looking for a photo op, I might never have seen it!

It makes for a wonderfully textured photo, though! Thanks so much, JC!

That poor Elm tree has had larva in it, woodpeckers on it and now it's losing it's sap. And the drought has taken it's toll on it too.

The woodpeckers LOVE this tree. Don't know why. I have seen 4 different kinds of woodpeckers working on this one tree!
