When is maple syrup season?

Here in western Massachusetts maple production season usually starts in mid/late February.  In the higher elevations boiling may not start until the first week in March.  The season usually lasts 4-6 weeks, all depending on the weather. Most producers here are done boiling by mid-April, when the night time temperatures remain above freezing and the tree buds begin to swell.
