Do trees release any liquids other than sap?

    Although the main liquid deciduous trees release is sap, there are a couple of other liquids that some trees produce and sometimes release. First off, there are different kinds of sap — xylem sap and phloem sap. (Maple syrup is made from the reduced xylem sap of the sugar maple.) Then there is latex, which is a milky fluid in the Para rubber tree that coagulates on exposure to air and is used to make (you guessed it) rubber. Coniferous trees release resin, which is a sticky hydrocarbon secretion used in varnishes and adhesives.
