Mechanical Groundskeeping and Construction Students Timber Stand Improvement
In the spring, the Mechanical Groundskeeping and Construction students look at the overall health of sugar maple trees located on school property. To keep the sugar maples producing the best quality sap possible, the Mechanical Groundskeeping and Construction students maintain a Timber Stand Improvement(TSI)routine.
A big part of the Timber Stand Improvement (TSI) is removing trees to reduce crowding, which allows the crowns of the maples to expand and more sunlight to reach the forest floor. This gives the young maple saplings underneath the best opportunity to survive and ensure future production.
Ultimately, if we produce more quality sap from a healthy forest, we produce more quality syrup!
