Finishing up the 2015 sugaring season – Plugging the tree

I demonstrate again how I take down my taps and hoses and then plug the tree just with its own suckers as a way to prevent insects from burrowing and it allows the tree to heal around the plug a bit quicker maybe and partially prevents the leakage of more sap which would be otherwise wasted.

Another year of sugaring, got 2.5 good litres of syrup this year, my best year I got 4 litres out of this tree. It was a short season. If I had many maples it wouldn’t be an issue but with 1, I do like to get a good long season of sugaring in!
