Anyone have any tips for a newbie maple tapper??? We have 5 maple trees on our property, 2 sugar maples, 2 red maples, and 1 silver maple. 4/5 trees have a diameter over 21'' so they have 2 taps in them... We tapped all but one 2 days ago and our silver and sugar maple have given us a gallon of sugar water. The fifth tree was tapped today... Our red maples have not produced anything yet. The temps here in Pittsburgh Pa has been slightly above freezing but has now dropped below and our taps are frozen. Next week is looking good for sap flow!
