About the event
In the past, Indiana was one of the top producers of maple syrup in the country. Many farms used to produce it to supplement their income in the winters. With the clearing of forest in the state, production has declined. Purdue Extension is working to increasing the production and consumption of Indiana maple syrup.
Lenny Farlee, Purdue Extension Forester, will discuss identification of invasive species and ways that they can be controlled to improve the health of the forest. Phil Woolery, Purdue Extension Educator, will discuss methods for assessing tree health and their ability to provide sap for making syrup. One of the methods will include using drone technology.
