The maple sugar industry of the Northeast is now beset with economic trouble, that protend a time of change. In the past, this colorful old industry benefited from research that was oriented mainly toward production and processing methods. Today a need is seen for paying more attention to the sugar maple tree itself. This is the approach being taken in the cooperative sugar maple research project being conducted by the University of Vermont and the Northeastern Forest Experiment Station of the U.S. Forest Service, aiming toward tree improvement based largely on a more thorough understanding of the genetic, morphological, and physiological factors associated with sap sweetness and rate of sap flow.
