Tapping

We tap Sugar Maple tree’s.  We drill approx. 1 1/2 inch into the tree.  Then we put the tap(spile) into the tree and wait to see if anything is gathering up at the bend of the tube.  When we see it dripping into the tube,  we put it straight into the bucket.  When it is running good, we usually hear the constant dripping sound from inside the bucket.  Music to our ears

 

We’re hoping to be able to get more tree’s tapped next year.  This year we only had about 40 taps out.  Our total collected sap this year, was around 300 gallons.
