Tree growth rate can be an important indicator of how well the tree will heal from tapholes.
A summary of the current state of maple production in New England is based on surveys returned from approximately 220 sugarmakers in April, 2011.
Root pressure occurs when the soil begins to warm, and when snow has melted, and icy water from snow melt has largely drained from the soil, forest soils warm quickly.
Many researchers, in addition to many sugarmakers, have observed that there is a great range in the amount of sap produced from individual trees in a forest. Understanding, and perhaps predicting the different performances of the trees in a sugarbush is an aspect of maple physiology that remains fascinating.
How much money should you expect to make selling sap? There are many factors to consider.
Research studies must follow certain rules in order for the findings to be valid. This column discusses a few of these simple rules: comparison of treatment vs. control, replication, dealing with natural variation, and statistical validity.
Research results from experiments on sap yield using new and used spouts.
