    I don't know how well it will cut the sap, maybe you can report back to us on that. But I've used it on firearms and I sure can't see it being detrimental in any way.

    WD 40 worked well for me to remove sap from a Christmas tree I chopped up.

    You must give it a proper burial after chopping it up.

    You should throw Christmas trees on the campfire. You wanna talk about an inferno? lol We still have ours out back and I'll have to toss it in the fire pit and get video of it!

    This is a fact. I have burned old Christmas trees and been startled by the fire ball. About caught my backyard on fire once. it's crazy when you consider people used to put actual lit candles on Christmas trees in houses. Uninsured houses...

    The first time I threw a Christmas tree in my firepit, I about caught my yard on fire too! It shot a fireball about 15ft high in the air!
