I went to prune my peach tree this spring and found an area on the main trunk that had a squishy/yellow/transparent substance on it. The bark was soft and pealing away. The tree has many buds on it still, and overall looks pretty healthy. Is there anything I need to do to treat this tree? I have attached a picture.
