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.
