Birch tapping

Birch tapping is something that many foragers and bushcrafters look forward to at this time of year.  In this video I explain an alternative method that is much less harmful to the tree.

In the video mention some guidelines that exist on tapping birch trees; you can find out more about them in this post, as well as some academic studies into the harm that tapping causes the tree.

At the right time of year we include birch tapping on our 2 Day Bushcraft Course.  You can see plenty of photos from all of our courses here and on our Facebook page.
