Got this tree from a nursery and planted it about 1 1/2 yrs ago. Up until about 4 months ago it has been doing real well. Please see the dark spots on main trunk that run all up the tree and appear to be smeared. Also note that near the top some of the branches are dying back. Is it Bleeding Canker? I can’t tell. If it is bleeding canker or something else please let me know what I need to do to treat it.

    tree planted too deep
    roots suffocating
