ponderosa pine...

Asked May 8, 2020, 6:31 PM EDT

A nice young ponderosa pine was overly pruned, IMHO, and the amount of sap leaking from the
cuts is awful. The lower branch now is drying out with most needles turning brown.
It seems all the trees sap is leaking from all these cuts on this 20ft-25ft tree.

This is so sad. Thanks.
