CDC - Larry Skinner Maple Products Tour

Larry Skinner Maple Products Tour

When: Saturday, March 10th, starting at 9:30 AM

Where: 245 Hidley Road, Wynantskill, NY 12198

The New York Forest Owners Association and the Rensselaer Plateau Alliance will again co-host a tour of a Sugar Bush and Maple Sap operation.

Larry Skinner operates about 200 taps on the Gibbs woodlot (N. B. Dick Gibbs is a former NYFOA CDC Chapter Chair) and he will give a detailed discussion of how he has built up his collection system with lines. We will walk in the woodlot with NYFOA forester and discuss best management practice for a sugar bush as compared to a woodlot for timber production. The group will then drive about a mile to Larry and Kathy’s evaporator and syrup processing facility where we will see Larry’s new evaporator in operation. All of this assumes we have picked the right date for sap flow!

There is a $5 suggested donation to help cover the cost of refreshments. For more info contactDick Gibbs at (518) 225-7371 or e-mail
