A Tree’s History

old holes

Sugaring season can be so poignant! With a focus to each individual tree, we can see the history and time-line of every one. Old tap holes heal and “travel” up the tree as the trunk grows. It is a reminder that people have been using the natural resources around them for many decades before.

This specific tree has been tapped for maple sugaring for at least 20 years (that I can remember).
