Feel free to call Michael Farrell, If you have a disability and are having trouble accessing information on this website or need materials in an alternate format, please contact Cornell University via email at. I expect to collect and process another batch on the weekend. Really curious how this goes! I’m new to tapping and tapped 20 black walnut trees in Bucks County, PA. About 6 are giving me sap and nothing from the others. Photo by Michael Farrell. Inspect for pruning needs annually. We live near Coeur d’Alene, in North Idaho and have 13 very mature Black Walnut trees……..must have been imported nearly 100 yrs ago. The researchers never investigated the potential to use this sap as a source of syrup production. This year we had a lot of nuts but there is a ton of pectin. However, your type of tree can have specific needs and rules for trimming. Walnut tree pruning is important for the tree’s health, structure, and productivity. So a large walnut tree with a long, straight trunk can be worth $8,000 or more. I haven’t really had much issue with pectin so far. On mature trees, it is best to thin the canopy rather than shorten it. What to look for when pruning a walnut tree. of Black Walnut Sap? Sap flow in English walnut (Juglans regia) has also been studied in France due to the worldwide importance of nut production in this species. Last year I had no problem with pectin. Dear Ms. S., you can prune back your walnut tree. I’ve tried sycamore, hack berry, and hickory with no luck, but have not pursued them. I’ve heard of walnut sugar. If you do need to prune because the tree is growing too large, perform the pruning during the month of September. Syrup produced was wonderfully buttery and nutty and very different from maple. However if the tree has heavy limbs in a Y-shaped crotch, it has to be felled with great care or the trunk might split in two, which drops its value to maybe $500. Wish me luck! A split log is useless for veneering. Tapping black walnut is certainly no “new phenomenon.” I first encountered it in the book “THE DIARY OF MRS. JOHN GRAVES SIMCOE WIFE OF THE FIRST LIEUTENANT-GOVERNOR OF THE PROVINCE OF UPPER CANADA, 1792-6,” where she records that “The sugar was made from black walnut trees, which looks darker than that from the maple, but I think it is sweeter.”, I have been considering tapping the very large black walnut trees (24″+ diameter) that are on my property in Skaneateles (Onondaga County) NY for a few years and this year have gone and done it. I am likely to do maybe one more major cook down on the weekend and then untap and plug the trees so they can get on with spring. Worked great. Looking forward to some walnut sirup! I found that after taking the sap off the evaporator and before putting it on the stove to finish it, I run it through an orlon filter twice, and then once more right before its finished. Has there been any research on toxicity of this syrup? This process is not possible with a split log. I’ve collected 3 gallons and 1 quart thus far and anticipate another couple of gallons by end of this week. Same with sycamores and hackberries. Can tap Norway maples, Box Elders Scymore and birch trees (100) gal to gallon of syrup.Any maple tree will make syrup. © 2019 Cornell Small Farms. The earliest run (Jan20-30) produced a gallon of concentrate from about 30 of sap, which I am estimating will yield 1/2 gallon of syrup, for a 60 to one ratio. © 2019 Cornell Small Farms. Suggestions?! Thanks everyone for all the posts, comments, and info! The walnut syrup is great the walnut jelly while actually tasting OK is not really my thing so going to have to try some of my pectic enzymes I use in wine.
