Autumn blaze maple weeping

Asked February 7, 2019, 12:05 PM EST

I had my 25 year old maple pruned in early December. During some of the warm weather I noticed that some of the 2-3” wide cuts where branches were removed were very moist and dripping what seemed like water. Not sticky sap. Since we’ve had our snow the last couple of weeks it has stopped at the cut places, but one long branch in particular is still dripping fluid from several places. There were no cuts on this branch. The fluid is water-like with just a slight stickiness. Any thoughts you have would be appreciated. I’m wondering if the branch that’s currently weeping should be removed
