On this last point of the tour you will see the iconic to Vermont and New Hampshire, Sugar Maple. Famously in Vermont the sap of this tree is used to make maple syrup. Sugar Maple typically can be found in drier sandy loams and well drained areas. It is rarely found in swampy areas. I incorperated this tree species because it is very common and saught after in the northeast.
