Management of the sugar bush, according to the author, calls for the complete exclusion of grazing and the gradual elimination of all species except sugar maple. Its goal is a stand of about 50 stems per acre in the upper crown levels, with 150 or more sap buckets. Experimental plots at Geneva, N. Y., indicate that this goal can be attained in either even-aged or all-aged stands, with some advantages in favor of the latter.
