BRATTLEBORO — As the Vermont winter season coincides with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, not even a virus can stop the Northeast tradition of going out into the woods and tapping maple trees for the sugaring season.

Charlie Robb Jr., from Robb Family Farm, and another worker walked through several inches of snow as they tap over 6,000 maple trees to prepare for the upcoming season.

Charlie Jr. uses a drill to make the perfect hole as he taps maple trees.
