Now that spring is here (sort of), it's now time to get out in the woods and harvest some walking sticks. If you want to easily peel the bark off of maple and the like, this is the best time to do it. The sap is flowing and the bark will peel without any damage to the stick underneath. On the other hand if you want to keep the bark on don't cut them yet. If you do, as they dry the bark will not stay attached and you will end up with a bark tube. LOL
