    Most of the sugarbushes being tapped today developed from natural forest stands years before their present owners were born. Trees were plentiful then, and land could be purchased at low cost. Wood was the primary fuel for both homes and sugaring operations, and unwanted trees in the sugarbush were removed as part of the annual wood-cutting process. The development of sugarbushes from natural stands was a "hit or miss" proposition.
