Maple Tree Tapping

I had the opportunity to take a class on Maple Tree tapping put on by the Missouri Department of Conservation. They provided all the information need to tap the trees and convert the sap to syrup or sugar. Unfortunately I had to leave early to get to work so I missed some of the information on boiling down and checking the specific gravity, but I can search the web for that. I did find out that I can tap the Silver Maples in my yard, but only two are large enough. Still it will be something to try out.
