You’ll never suck enough sap from a tree to kill it, but you can injure it if you don’t vary your drill spots each year. Morse is a big fan of steel health spouts, which slip into holes drilled with a 5/16th-inch bit; you can pick them up at supply stores such as Bascom Maple Farms in Alstead, NH. If you live in an area that gets big winters, drill as low as possible. “If the snow melts, you don’t want to be reaching up for your buckets at the end of the season,” Morse cautions.
