Maple trees, which according to family tradition were planted by William Edwin Pearson bordering the 10th line of Innisfil and east of the farmhouse located at S 1/2 of Lot 2, Concession 10, when he was 18 years of age. William was born circa 1866 and therefore these maples would have been planted circa 1884. These trees would therefore, at the time this photo was taken have been approximately 118 years old. During the 1940's I recall my parents and I tapping these trees to make Maple Syrup for our own use. the Field and the road along which these trees stretched would flood during the Spring melt, so often we would have to put on our rubber boots and wade through the water in order to collect the sap. This photo was taken by Raymond Crane, grandson of William.
