WVII interviews Hopkins about start of sap season

Kathy Hopkins, a maple syrup expert with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, spoke with WVII (Channel 7) for a report about the start of Maine’s maple syrup season. The start of sap season relies heavily on the weather, WVII reported. Hopkins said the ideal sap conditions are “when the temperatures are warm during the day — around 40 or so — and drop below freezing at night.”
