    Default anybody want maple buds?

    Taking down a good sized maple today and figured the buds could be a nice snack. So far I've collected a decent boxful, but there is much, much more coming down soon. I'd be more than happy to share; no way my boys will get through this all!

    Maple buds are a very nutritious natural food source for tree squirrels; at bud break free calcium is at its highest, as are other nutrients.

    Wish I was closer! We don’t have many maple trees around here. The squirrels here may not know what to do with them....at first.

    It's a silver maple, no leaves yet, just the red buds right now. My little guys love them, so I figured why see them go to waste.

    I've been collecting what I can in between dropping and cutting the limbs, so this is what I've got so far, but still more coming today. Feel free to pm me addresses or comment and I'll make a list of everyone who wants some!

    I received a box of these buds, thank you seven! Unfortunately, my Florida squirrels don’t realize they’re a “delicacy”. They won’t touch them!

    We had a strange warm spell right after the winter storms, I'm wondering if that confused the plants lol. There are daffodils and stuff coming up already too!
