    My magnolia tree (about 30 years old) appears to be diseased. The branches are covered with this solf white cotton-like substance and it keeps continually dripping this sticky sap. What is this and what can I do about it?

    Thanks Silver Surfer for a prompt reply. I googled further of Magnolia Scale and that's exactly what it is. Now to the task of trying to rid of it. Sounds challenging.
