"Very helpful. Thanks. Understood it very clearly until the last sentence. Basal drill-n-fill and foliar Garlon 4/triclopyr basal bark sound different from spraying the exposed end-grain of a cut stump."

Entomology of Sugar Maple Forests

Sugar maple is one of the most iconic and economically important trees in our forests. This webinar will address some of the most important current and potential insect pests and stressors that may accentuate their impacts. Insects (and other pests) tend to target specific parts of trees.  By understanding these parts, and their interaction with pests, owners, producers and managers can better understand and utilize methods of control.  Join Mark Whitmore of the Cornell University Department of…See More

Buying and Selling Sap

Posted on February 17, 2016 at 12:00pm 0 Comments

Many landowners seek entrepreneurial opportunities from their woodlands, as a way to offset management costs or as part of a business venture.  Traditional opportunities have emphasized extraction of fiber (timber, firewood, pulp) or land rental fees (hunting leases), and of course maple syrup production. 

The buying and selling of sap has also been part of the rural tradition of woodland enterprises. Often, though, the process for the transaction, how to value the sap, and how to…
