The Cornell Uihlein Maple Forest near Lake Placid, NY, includes a sugar maple research field station that is recognized as the center for sugar maple research and extension for the Northeastern US and Canada. It was established in 1965 with the aid of gifts and support from Mr. and Mrs. Henry Uihlein II of Lake Placid.
More than 200 acres provide for the study of the management, health, and genetic improvement of sugar maple trees; and maple sap production and syrup processing. Published papers and the results of research and projects are disseminated through the statewide Cornell Maple Program and at seminars at the field station. Facility tours for scientists, maple producers, extension educators and school groups are available.
