View Full Version : Torrey Pines and too much water?

I have a young (5 yr old) Torrey Pine that is near grass. It is weeping sap from pruned/healed over branches. Is this due to the water? Is there a bettle or something I should be concerned about?

Also, in my neighborhood there is a very large Torrey Pine (30 yrs old) growing in a lawn. (It is at a rental unit.) A branch just fell off. Is this a symptom of something? I'd like to convince the owner to get rid of the grass. I hope the city doesn't use the branch as an excuse to cut down the tree since it is in a parkway along a residential street. Both of these trees are in downtown Oceanside.
