Sap Fall

A great frozen waterfall of beech sap stalactiting from a massive specimen. The hang here is two plus feet!Gorgeous, but a sign of distress for the tree.

      Disease, I think. I alerted G-W’s main port person via email but didn’t get a response, which I hoped would give me more information.

    Is it present because of the cold? Would the sap normally drip away and not be as noticeable?

      I don’t know enough to answer. Returned a week later and see that it’s still getting longer. Fluctuations in temperature here have been a of a roller coster since New Year; got up to 59 last night
