reply to Annette
I couldn't seem to get my reply to go through so I will repeat the question and add pictures. My blue spruce trees (2) have just recently had white stuff running down the trunks. There is no indication of the trees dying yet and there are no holes that I can see. The stuff appears the full length of the trunks as far as I can see.

Thanks for the photos. I did receive and respond to your earlier note with photos. The only thing I notice that is different on these photos is sap leakage from a pruning cut on the far left. This often happens at pruning sites, especially when the tree is pruned at some other time than is ideal which is January to early March. Good luck with your tree.
