Watertown Daily Times quotes Lilley about sugaring season

The Watertown Daily Times quoted Jason Lilley, assistant Extension professor of sustainable agriculture and maple industry educator with University of Maine Cooperative Extension, about this year’s sugaring season. Lilley said in a U.S. Department of Agriculture news release that climate change was to blame for the early start of the season. “If we were experiencing this in a single season, I would say that it’s just a result of an abnormally warm winter. However, this has been a widely recognized trend among the maple industry over several seasons,” Lilley said in the release. Yahoo! News shared the Watertown Daily Times report.
