UMaine Extension Expert Demonstrates Balsam Tipping in TV Report

Channel 2 (WLBZ) interviewed Dave Fuller of University of Maine Cooperative Extension for a feature on how to sustainably harvest balsam fir tips for wreath-making. Fuller said in order to sustain the life of a tree, its limbs should never be completely stripped of branches. Fuller also stressed getting any necessary permissions from landowners, and wearing orange during tipping season, which coincides with hunting season.
