Sap flows like water at Martell's Landing
It's not something you would expect to see: a spigot jutting out from the trunk of a tree.
But to those who tap trees, the sight is as common as a vegetable garden.
Martell's Landing Education Center, 384 208th Ave. in Somerset, hosted a maple syrup and bluebird house event on Saturday, March 28. On hand were Bill Lawson and Kathy Brakke, Somerset residents and veteran tree tappers, as well as Lowell Peterson, local bluebird expert.
