Sugarbush management is an important part of the responsibility of maple producers to ensure healthy and productive trees.  Like all the duties of a maple producer, learning how to manage your sugarbush will take some time, involve learning new skills, benefit with assistance from others who are more knowledgeable, and take some time to achieve mastery.

An article describing 8 actions important to sustainably manage a sugarbush was first published in the Maple Digest in October 2016, and also published in the NY Forest Owner in November/December 2016 issue.  A copy is attached..

A presentation based on the 2016 article was prepared for the NYSMPA Annual Conference in January 2017.  A copy is attached here.
