What causes gum in citrus ?
I don't have much experience with citrus, though I have seen plenty of gummosis on Prunus species.
Gummosis is is a symptom. It is a response to some type of mechanical injury usually. In Prunus it may be a response to frost damage, a boring insect, damage from a weed whackers or a lesion from a vascular disease.
The best thing to do for any tree is to make sure it is getting proper irrigation and to improve soil conditions. Mulch and water help with both of those.
It is under construction but being filled with all sorts of neat outdoors and tree related conversation!
