I didn't realize that. And this is a problem? I figured that it would be OK as soon as the end had stopped leaking and dried up.

Hi Bill,

Even when the wound has dried up it can catch fungal spores and hold them until wet periods like in spring. Prunus is especially bad for fungus in the wood. Look at maples, cut off a large limb and it will rot from the wound inward. Persimmon also will rot.
