Tree problems

Asked July 18, 2015, 10:14 PM EDT

We have a large tree that has large amounts of brown goo running down the trunk in a couple different places. Not sure what kind of tree. Didn't know if you had a tree expert?

The "goo" running down the trunk of the tree may be due to wetwood. Wetwood is a common bacterial disease of trees. Information on wetwood may be found at the following website.
