Extreme Weather and Other Climate Change Considerations in Maple Syrup Production - an Ohio Woodland Stewards Escape to the Forest Program
From increasing winter and spring temperatures to extreme weather events, climate change poses a risk to the maple syrup production community. These changes alter short-term conditions like quality and quantity of sap, while long term changes in climate are having impacts on the health of trees, roots, and shifting areas where production is viable. Projections of future climate pose significant challenges to the future of maple production across southern zones. How might the community plan for and mitigate these impacts?
Join us as we explore the influence of weather and climate change on the maple industry and discuss the implications for the future.
