Maple Manual Video Series

USDA Acer grant funding was used to convert the 2nd edition of the Maple Manual into a series of short video clips shot across the entire maple region in the US. It was a collective effort that relied on maple producers from 12+ states and countless hours on the road over the course of 3 years and 1 global pandemic. These video resources will be updated as new technologies are developed and become commercially available. We will also update content as new research findings are announced as a result of past, current, and future USDA Acer awards given out each fall. Special thanks to Mel Koelling and Randy Heiligmann for their assistance and to chapter authors who volunteered their time to update their respective content.
