Close up of a gouge in loblolly pine bark. There's almost always drops of sap oozing out of this one during the spring and summer. This particular tree is well over 60 feet and around 30 years old.
Eastern and Southeastern United States. Forests.
Loved this tree since I was a kid, especially playing with the sap that always collected in the gouge.
