The Cornell Maple Program has been working on developing athletics-oriented maple products for several years. Our latest work has led to a “maple sports drink,” a hydrating, nourishing electrolyte-replacement beverage that meets the same nutritional standards as Gatorade and Powerade.

The Cornell Maple Program has been working on adapting gourmet marshmallow procedures for a recipe that uses maple as the only sweetener, and the results pack a lot of maple flavor.
During the 2021 season, the UVM Proctor Center tested SapSpy (www.sapspy.com), a relatively new entrant in the sugarbush monitoring field.
Maple producers know that when the temperature starts to rise in the spring, sap flows can’t be far behind. But when the weather starts to warm early in the spring and temperatures seem favorable for good sap flows, they are sometimes left wondering why the sap hasn’t started to run. There are several explanations for the disconnect between warm air temperature and a lack of flow during
the early season.
Explains how sap flows in trees and the impact that tapping has on subsequent years’ sap flow.
Changes in the amount of sugar in maple sap vary within a sap run, from day to day, throughout the season, and from year to year.
Increasing the yield of sap from maple trees is the goal of most maple producers. While getting there isn’t a matter of one simple thing, by
following best management practices and paying attention to detail it is possible to increase sap yields, often quite dramatically. Includes links to videos.
Three-year study finds little payoff in sap yield for sugarmakers who tap in the fall.
Increasing the yield of sap from maple trees is the goal of most maple producers. While getting there isnÕt a matter of one simple thing, by following best management practices and paying attention to detail it is possible to increase sap yields, often quite dramatically.
By tapping the trees for sap collection, it may be possible to create value from the beech trees in your forest.
