Over $10,000 Donated to Maple Industry!


Tonewood has just donated 1% of our 2016 sales to the University of Vermont's Proctor Maple Research Centre.  This recent cheque brings total donations since 2012 to over $10,000.  By donating to the Proctor Centre's efforts to combat climate change and it's ravaging affects on the maple industry, Tonewood hopes to secure the health of our maple trees for generations to come.

The Proctor Maple Research Center is a Field Research Station of the Department of Plant Biology in the College of Agriculture & Life Sciences at the University of Vermont.

The Proctor Maple Research Center was established in 1946 with the donation of the former Harvey Farm in Underhill Center, Vermont, to the University of Vermont by Governor Mortimer Proctor.  Research has centered on the sugar maple tree (Acer saccharum Marsh.) and its products--sap and syrup.
