    Do any of you folks know about maple tapping? I tapped a tree in my back yard this spring (I do not know what kind of maple) and it has not been producing any sap. It has been the right temperature for the sap to flow, but every time I go out to check the bucket, it is completely dry! Why would this be?

    Like u said it must be the right temp. below freezing at night and thaw during the day. also ur tap might not be deep enough or you might have the wrong kind of maple tree

      make sure it's a sugar maple.

        I know that it should be a sugar maple, but even if it is not, it should still produce some sap shouldn't it?

          Not sure I'd want to consume the sap if I wasn't sure about the species of tree.
