Artist's Description

When I first saw all this “bleeding” from the pine trees I thought they were dying. Seems they do this sort of thing all the time, sometimes dropping gobs of sap the size of your hand. People still park their cars under those trees so I guess this goo doesn’t pull the paint off when you try to remove it. What’s especially interesting is the number of holes in the freshest runs. I don’t know what’s making those holes but I’ve seen the hummingbirds sticking their tongue in them all times of the year. I’ll trust their judgment and refrain from licking some to taste test it.

So, since no 2-needle pines grow in my area, these have to be imports from the nursery that supplied the building contractor(s). The questions are what are they and are they blowing out sap because they aren’t supposed to be in this non-native environment. Carla suggested Sugar Pines and that’s not listed in my book. I’d put this in Bubble Jeopardy but I can’t tell if someone guesses correctly or not. LOL!

Oh, they also seem to all have both male and female cones.
