Douglas Fir with Blueish Sap?

Several mature Douglas Firs in my neighbourhood (Central British Columbia) are weeping a distinctly Blue sap this spring? Never seen this before, we've had an odd late winter early spring as temperatures were +10C one and 2 weeks ago, now they are -10C (April 1)

Our Doug for trees are raining down pitch on cars and decks. It’s Fall is this normal

We live on acreage with hundreds of Doug Fir trees and they all seem to be misting down pitch every day that constantly needs to be washed off of cars and skylights. It’s late November and I don’t ever remember this happening before in the fall. I’m hoping the trees are healthy. Is this a normal occurrence?

Who's helping sawmills, lumbermen & loggers?

There's so much in the news about how the farmers are being hurt by both the economic/trade restrictions and mother nature, but there is NOTHING about the devastation that our hardwood industries are suffering. Emerald Ash Bore, Oak Wilt, Beech Bark disease.. to name just a few. Who's giving money or tax breaks to the numerous sawmills, lumber companies & loggers? Please, help bring this situation to the national level. Federal subsidies and tax breaks are needed!!! Generation owned sawmills are closing down because of the sanctions between Canada/USA and the elimination of some species of hardwoods. PLEASE HELP!
