Nourse Sugarbush

The ancient maples and hemlocks of the Nourse Sugarbush are one of the best examples of northern mesic forest in the state of Wisconsin. The Ojibway tapped these tall maple trees for maple sugar for hundreds of years. The sugarbush is well-known for its giant maple trees towering over 100 feet.
