The season is approaching fast! Today we ran our longest run of mainline (1/4 mile). It is on the old Cullen Estate, on the tote road that connect Steven’s Estate and Edgewood. It has 25 great old sugar maple trees that we believe were planted around 150 years ago (just our guess based on size). We will only place 4 taps in each tree as this is the maximum number of taps that a tree should have according to the North American Maple Producer’s Manual.
We not ready to tap yet as it is too early in the season, but running the lines before hand really helps spread out the work.
