Tree Leaking

Question

Had a limb cut of a tree that was damaged and is now leaking. Will this heal up on it's own or should i be worried? 😃 It could be sap but it is very water and drips alot off tree, attempting to uplaod video but can't seem to get it to work.

 

Any replies appraciated, thank you in advance.

Yep, although any wound on a tree is a potential entry point for pathogens and decay...would have been a better time of the year to do this but it will survive

Birch will do that at this time of year. I’d be sticking my head beneath it and drinking it if I were you, very refreshing.

Cheers Steve, will this heal on its own? :)

Catch it, makes a good wine, or similar. Have also heard of it being used to sweeten tea or watered down if you don’t like it neat.

 

it normally stops in a couple of days but occasionally lasts up to a week, quite possibly linked to how much moisture it is up taking from the ground.
