Climate changes will impact forests/maple industry

February 6, 2013
By RICHARD GAST , Adirondack Daily Enterprise

For many of the region's maple syrup producers, the 2012 sugaring season was unlike any they'd ever experienced. Several of the smaller producers I spoke with last year told me that it was their worst season ever. A few said it lasted literally one, or less than one week. A few didn't even bother to tap. According to the Department of Agriculture National Agricultural Statistics Service, syrup production in New York state decreased by more than 36 percent; from 564,000 gallons with a value of just over $22 million in 2011, to 360,000 gallons with a value of just under $12.3 million in 2012.
