Hello. I have a mature Douglas Fir in my front yard. I noticed that ever since I purchased the house a year and a half ago, that there is a pretty constant flow of sap, coming from one place during the summer. I was curious if this much sap is normal, or if it indicates some sort of issue. Thank you for the help in advance!

Probably a borer of some type attacking that area of the tree. The tree is trying to “push” out the pest. Could also be a fungal canker or wound.

Thank you. That's what I thought it might be. I am working on getting in touch with an arborist after the holiday to gain some professional advice on how to treat it.
