A thin trunk of ivy-covered sycamore was threatening our telephone line so six months ago I cut it off. The rest of the tree appears fine but a vivid orange gunk is now flowing out from the stump and dribbling down the side. This has been going on for about two weeks and probably coincides with rising sap.
