I have an inherited cherry tree, v large. It is oozing sticky stuff, very badly and we are in the throws of taking it down and burning it but unfortunately it has infected a new apricot tree. I have taken off the affected branches but the main trunk has started oozing. Is there anything I can do. The apricot is small, still in a pot. Just for information, I live in Italy. Can you suggest what I can do to save the apricot tree.
Also, I have an enormous pine that has been oozing a milky substance, what can I do about this.
Leslie, Thank you very much for your reply and apologies for the delay. It was as you said and we have now, sadly, felled the tree as it was in a very bad condition luckily we saved an apricot from the same fate.
