I just read an article in our local paper about maple tree tapping for making syrup. I'm going to go to our local hardware "farm" store this weekend to see if they have the spiles. Tractor Supply didn't have them on their website, but Lowes of all places did. Anyone have experience tapping trees for syrup? I'll post photos of the equipment, cost as well as the process as the time goes on. I hear its best to do this in the 2nd week of Feb since its cold out.

So your saying that you can do this without the metal taps? Or are you saying to plug it after you have tapped it? I guess the next question would be how long do you tap it? I've heard of blazing a tree before, but I thought that was just for marking a trail.
