Many people who are familiar with maple syrup know it comes from the sap of maple trees. This sap contains a natural sugar that is perfect for making maple syrup. However, you can also use sap from birch trees to make a basic syrup or a tasty wine. You can easily learn how to tap birch trees for this purpose.

One important thing to know about the sap from birch trees is it is mostly water. This means evaporation will be used to concentrate the sap. This is done after you have collected a sufficient amount of sap. The best method to tap birch trees is to use a rubber tube and a plastic jug or bottle.

The time of year and weather will be determining factors when you want to tap birch trees. This task is usually done around the end of February to the middle of April. Do not try to collect sap when the temperature is below freezing.
