Persimmon Tree Trunk Oozing Black Tar

I noticed one of my persimmon tree is oozing out some black tar like substance at the base of the tree. Is this bad? I have two other persimmon trees and have grown one large one at my previous house and have never seen this. What can I do to cure this please?

Could be bleeding sap from bark injuring? If the tree is healthy then just an eye on it.
