Advice for collecting
sap as a hobby
• Start small.
• Only tap trees in good wood, not near cracks.
• Try tapping near black bark, as it seems to run faster there.
• Boil most of the moisture out of your sap outdoors, as the moisture can damage wallpaper and other wall coverings.
• Never carry sap farther into the woods. When harvesting, start with the trees farthest from your vehicle and carry containers out. The distance gets shorter with every tree.
