LONDONDERRY, N.H. (AP) – December’s winter ice storm damaged many New Hampshire trees but maple syrup producers say they are preparing for a good season.

Producers across the state say some of their trees were damaged, especially those on the edge of wooded areas, but the losses were not devastating. Hank Peterson of Peterson Sugar House in Londonderry is predicting a good season, thanks to the cold weather and deep snow. Peterson expects New Hampshire to bring in around 90,000 gallons of syrup, which is an average harvest.
