Simply put: Tree water is a natural source of water that is obtained from trees. James and Margaret have owned a sugaring operation in Norwood since 2010. James Finen has been making maple syrup since the age of 7. Margaret Finen had never seen syrup made prior to her first experience in 2010. While observing the process, she found it interesting that you can separate water from the sap prior to boiling it into maple syrup. At the time many if not all producers were discarding the natural water. She had it tested and found it was indeed water. Since then she has been working diligently, over the past 6 years to get tree water into the market place. Margaret notes that they have overcome a lot of hurdles but still have a few more to get over.
