Durham Sugarhouse

Durham, Connecticut

In early to mid February, when the nights are cold, less than 25 degrees F, and the days are warming, above 40* F, the Sugar Maple tree prepares itself for spring. The tree’s root system sends sap up the trunk of the tree to the leaf system. At night, when it is cold, the tree senses that it is too early for spring, and all the sap runs back down the tree to the roots. This cycle of cold nights and warm days is when the sap collected.
