We always thin our sugar bushes before installing tubing so that the maple trees and other timber receive enough sunlight and soil to thrive. Usually we take out the weakest, damaged, and undesirable tree species first, but our property on Brass road had some mature black walnut that was ready to harvest. We’ve finally finished making floorboards out of some of it for our new home. C&M milled and coated 1121 sq.ft. for us, it looks amazing. We can’t wait to make some tap hole maple in 5-10 years on our next harvest!
