Dying Mimosa

Our 5 year old Mimosa tree has suddenly started to die.  The leaves are
turning brown and falling off.  This began about 3 weeks ago and
approximately 60% of the tree appears to be dead.  A small hole at the base
of the trunk is oozing a foam substance as is the area of the first split of
the main trunk.  It has a sour mashy smell.  I'm afraid the whole tree will
be dead in the next couple of weeks.  Does anyone have any idea what might
be killing the tree?
