I apologize that no one has responded to your question sooner. Different experts come online at various times. I just came online and saw your question. My name is ***** ***** I’m a biologist with a special interest in trees. It's not normal for pine sto drip a lot of sap. It means something is wrong. Some additional information may help us figure out what.
What kind of pines are these?
Is the sap dripping from the bark, the needles, or both?
Is the sap dark or light in color?
Are there dark or wet-looking spots on the trunks?
In what state do you live?
Thank you.
