Abstract

Monty Washburn of Kittery Point explains how to cut branches from Staghorn Sumach trees to make sap spiles. The Sumach's soft pith center make it especially desirable for spiles, which are hollowed out branches that are re-inserted into the tree to drain sap. About 40 gallons of sap make a gallon of syrup. Details.
