Does anyone have experience in trying to remove tree sap from a mesh trampoline?

Goof Off would likely work. I don't think it would harm the mesh.

I've had good luck with alcohol-based hand sanitizer for breaking down pine sap.

Worth a try!

Another 'possible' solution for tree sap without damaging your trampoline mesh is WD-40. I have used it for years to remove stickers / stripes from painted surfaces on vehicles, motorcycles and boats. I just spray/rub it onto the sticker and allow it to soak in. Then just gently peel and rub off the sticker and goop. I have used WD-40 on other glue / goop type stuff and have had good results. I am not sure if it will work on tree sap though, that can be some nasty stuff.
