Answer: Sap production is one way a tree deals with wounds. Eventually the sap will harden and seal over the wounded area. There isn't anything you should or need to do. It's a natural process, especially in the spring when the sap is really moving through the tree. Just leave it alone and it will seal itself up. You can avoid this in the future by trimming in the late winter months while the tree is in a dormant state. Best wishes with your evergreen!
