Maple Tapping

Just west of North Scituate Village, blue plastic tubing can be seen running between maple trees in the woods on the south side of Danielson Pike near the Horseshoe Dam. The tubing connects taps in hundreds of trees to a vacuum pump and collection tank that is a modern setup for collecting sap to make maple syrup. The maple syrup from these trees and others is available locally from On the Lane Farm.
