Sugar Maples, a Proverbial Canary in the Changing Climate

Sep 24 2017

Cornucopia’s Take: As our climate changes, many species are disappearing from their native habitat, and sugar maples are one that is in danger. Sap farmers are tapping other trees for syrup now, including the more hardy red maple. Many people are planning adaptations to the changing climate, and more study and discussion on the subject is needed.
