The activities conducted at the Uihlein Field Station form the core of the Cornell Sugar Maple Program. The Field Station is located near Lake Placid in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains. It is administered by the Department of Natural Resources, which is part of the New York State College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Cornell University. The Field Station was established in 1965 with the aid of generous support from Mr. and Mrs. Henry Uihlein II of Lake Placid, New York.

The Uihlein Field Station's 200+ acres of forest provide an outdoor laboratory for the study of forest management and health. Its greenhouse and orchards are at the core of a northeast regional research initiative to identify and cultivate genetically improved maple stock. And its state-of-the-art vacuum tubing and processing equipment enable researchers to develop improved techniques for sap collection and syrup processing. Results of the research projects are shared with maple producers and scientists through papers in professional journals and farmer magazines, trainings, and presentations at the Field Station and throughout New York State, and the Cornell Sugar Maple Website. The Field Station's sugar bush of approximately 4,000 taps, which has shown increasing annual production, is used to demonstrate the merits of new technology and proper forest stewardship to visiting maple producers and landowners. Proceeds from the sales of Uihlein maple products help support the research and extension efforts. Click Here for information on purchasing maple products.
