My Tree is sick

Hi there,
My tree is sick. It has discolored pale park all over, and in some areas it is soft to the touch and has a green tint. there are a few places where a green mucous-like liquid is visible. for instance, it is accumulated in a knot in the tree. some of the bark has stripped off the trunk in one area, and several branches have fallen off. I have pictures and will be happy to email them or post them here if I can. Does anyone know what is wrong or what I can do?

Pictures are necessary for any accurate diagnosis.
An easy way to post them is to open a free account at Upload your pictures there. Click on the HTML line (third line beneath your picture in Photobucket when you hold the cursor over your picture) and it should say "copied", then paste here [this gardenweb forum] in the message area - not in a link [You can paste multiple pictures regardless of size and you won't see the picture, but only computer lingo until you click on "Preview Message" below]. You will be able to post pictures on any other forum, too. After pasting your photos here [this gardenweb forum], you should see them when you hit "Preview Message" before you actually post the message.
