The process of making maple syrup on a small scale, from selecting trees to managing your sugar bush, and what to think about if you want to get bigger and turn it into a business.

Many forest landowners seek additional opportunities to generate income off their property, not tied to harvesting timber; others like to be self-sufficient and make use of the resource they have; other landowners are looking for family-centered hobbies making use of their forested resources. This webinar introduces the process of making maple syrup on a small scale, from selecting trees to managing your sugar bush, and what to think about if you want to get bigger and turn it into a business.
