Pictured is the maple syrup plant, owned by Allard Peterson of Route 1, Box 78, Eland, Wisconsin. All trees in his 'sugar bush' are connected by a plastic hose or pipeline, which carries the sap to a holding tank, and from there it is boiled down into maple syrup, which is 'lick slickum good' on homemade flap jacks.
