Earlier this week, we told you the story of maple poachers, stealing sap from maple trees on Michigan state-owned lands. Now, according to MLive.com, we find out Ann Arbor is having problems with people tapping their city-owned trees for syrup.

One would think the City of Ann Arbor would celebrate their residents using nature's bounty to provide a natural and renewable source of food like maple syrup.

One would be wrong. And the city may have a good point. Tapping the maple trees MIGHT leave them susceptible to insects and disease. And dead trees all over the city could get expensive. You can still tap your own trees, just not the city's trees - on the other side of the sidewalk.
