Locust Trees Are Leaking Brown Sap But Still Look Healthy

Question From: Amarillo, Texas, United States
Q: My locust trees are leaking a brown sap. But still look healthy . Want to know if there is a treatment for this

A: Locust trees do leak a lot of sap if the bark is damaged. Such damage could be from a tool, cracks in the bark causes by wind or insects. If it looks like they are leaking like sieves I would get an onsite inspection from an arborist. They could be in serious trouble.
