Specialty Maple Lumber

The Uihlein Forest also supplies woodworkers and customers with specialty maple lumber. Taphole lumber is a culturally rich product milled from tapped sugar maples that have reached the end of their life. This lumber beautifully preserves the memory of the past sugarmakers through the color and arrangement of a century of tap holes. Tapholes can be left open in the final product or filled with epoxy for a smooth surface. We offer custom cut taphole lumber and intact sawlogs. Please contact us at 518-523-9337 or for more information about purchasing taphole lumber.


Sweet Trees

The Uihlein Forest has been supplying maple producers with seedlings of high sugar content sugar maples. These seedlings are the hand-picked progeny of trees selected from across the northeastern US in the 1960’s for their high sap sugar content. Seedlings are available for purchase from Forrest Keeling Nursery:
