It's not secret that things took a turn for worst last week. My world came to a halt today as I walked outside and noticed sap on my Jacaranda tree. I don't know what this is and I am calling on you Jacaranda fans to help me out with this tree. My heart is broken. While the leaves are fried and have fallen off, the tree appears fine. There is still green bendy stuff under the bark, but I noticed these sap bubbles on the bark. Can't see them? Let's take a closer look.
I found more information about diseases etc. from this link...
It's my belief that the hard freeze created ice crystals in the trunk and exploded creating these sap bubbles. The interesting part will be to see if this tree will start from the roots or if the main trunk will still leaf out. Stay tuned as I'll keep everyone uptodate.
