When the days are warm and the nights are cool its Sugar Time! Maple trees start to get ready for spring and the sap starts running. This age old practice was first developed by Native North Americans and perfected by the early Colonists.
Sugar Maple, Red Maple, Black Maple and even some Birch trees can be tapped to create this delicious treat. And recent figures indicate that the global consumption of maple syrup is close to 9 million gallons. This sustainable harvest is an important crop in the State of Vermont and the Province of Quebec in Canada. Closer to home many homeowners tap their trees as a hobby to enjoy this seasonal delight.
Ask your SavATree Arborist if you have trees suitable for tapping and get ready for spring!
