Did You Know:
Northeast Ohio is a major commercial producer of maple sugar due to its prime weather conditions. Most
commercial sugaring operations collect sap through interconnected plastic tubing attached to the maple trees, and the maple-sugaring season typically lasts four to six weeks.

OHIO MAPLE SEASON

Each year in February the Ohio maple industry begins the process of tapping area maple trees for their sap. Tapping a tree consists of drilling a small hole in the trunk of a sugar maple and inserting a spout. Then attaching a bucket or plastic tubing to the spout where the sap is collected.

The weather plays a big part in the type of maple harvest there will be. Cold freezing nights and warm sunny days help the sap in the trees to thaw. As sap pressure builds up in the tree the sap finds its way out. By tapping the tree, the sap has an outlet. The sap is then boiled to remove the excess water. It takes approximately 40 to 50 gallons of sap to produce one gallon of syrup.

Depending on the weather, the maple sugaring season lasts from mid-February through the first part of April.
