Live-to-camera (2021)

Often the reason we encounter sap on the outside of a tree is because something is wrong. Leaking sap on the bark can be a sign of disease, pests or damage. POPs, or persistent organic pollutants, sometimes known as "forever chemicals" are organic compounds that are resistant to environmental degradation through chemical, biological, and photolytic processes. These are toxic chemicals that adversely affect human health and the environment around the world.
