    Default Help needed in Norway/Oxford Hills

    Hello I have 12 or 15 trees I tap and just built an evaporator out of 275 gal. Oil drum and would love to tap a few more trees so I can really used the new evaporator to its full potential. I'm hoping some one could help me identify a few more sugar maples, I know this summer I found 5 or so maples in a little bush but need some help.... I live in Norway/oxford area (right on the line) I would be happy to pay for your time or gas! I have a snowmobiles 4 wheelers and lots of time to find them but with winter here I really struggle any help or maybe you know some one? Thanks!

    I tap what ever maple there was my 1st year. I tapped 40 white maples and had a 43 to 1. So if it's a maple tap it.
