    There is sticky, gummy stuff seeping out of my peach tree. What is it and what do I do about it.

    Thanks!

    It appears to be tree sap. Tree may be stressed.

    Try: www.dirtdoctor.com Click on the flowers and scroll down to the fruit tree program or sick tree treatment. Whether the tree is stressed or not, it does a world of good.

    Hope this helps.

    I'd also guess tree borers. Your local nurseryman or extension agent can advise you on treating.

  5. i had that problem happen to an apricot (manchurian)...lots of sap...sticky thick gunk...i cut the tree down---the whole inside of the tree was all rotten...i waited to long to cure it...maybe if its earlier enough you can still kill whatever is in there!

    Thanks for all the suggestions guys. I will check them out. Hopefully I won't have to cut it down, but I will just have to wait and see. Thanks again for the input.
