Kathryn Hopkins, a maple syrup expert and University of Maine Cooperative Extension educator and professor, spoke with the Maine Public Broadcasting Network for the report “Harsh winter expected to harm spring maple syrup harvest.” Hopkins said an ideal sugaring season consists of a long period of cold nights and sunny, warm days. Such weather hasn’t happened in Maine yet this year, but she predicts it will occur from late March into April.
