DNR Question Q: What's going to happen to the maple syrup season with this crazy weather? A: That is a question every maple syrup producer would like answered definitively. The key to a successful sea- son is having temperature fall below freezing at night and rise (preferably into the 30's to 40's)xturing the day for extended periods. Producers are worried that the temperature will not get low enough at night to encourage adequate sap flow. Some people believe that maple trees produce higher concentrations of sugar in the sap when there has not been adequate moisture the previous fall. Also, snowfall during the tapping season means that the next time the temperature rises above the freezing point, sap tends to flow rapidly and heavily. We won't know how things will turn out for sure until the 2012 season is over. -Mimi Barzen, DNR for- estry specialist BRANCH PICKUP NOTICE The City of Westbrook will hold two (2) branch pickups.
