Hi all. I have several blemishes on my royal poinciana (Delonix regia) that I have no idea where they came from, if they are harmful, and if I need to do something to help them. Some of them have been there for maybe a year, and don't seem to get better or worse.

This one is the oldest (and grossest) being probably a year old. It does ooze something, but hasn't much since summer started.

This one is fairly new I think. Not sure what is going on here.

Lastly I have this big bulge where two branches split. I am afraid that some of the branches are so heavy and it is creating strain?

Overall, I am just wondering if these problems are important and if I need to take action to help fix them. The tree is huge, probably 30 feet tall, and appears very healthy otherwise. Thank you!

Here's the whole tree:
