    I think "rosin" is particular to the sap of the pine tree. All others are "resin." JFI.

    Rosin has been used since the first "Box Calls" for turkey hunting were made.

    Pine Sap saw HEAVY use before and during the 18th century to make "brewers pitch" which was a waterproof coating inside leather drinking jacks and other leather containers to hold liquids, including fire buckets. They also used it inside some wooden jacks, barrels, etc.
