Q: Why is the production of Baker’s rosin seasonal?

We make our family rosins from the sap of living trees.

When the cooler temperatures of winter settle in on us it forces our trees to produce a larger particle colophony.

Unfortunately, large particle colophony results in rosin which is both noisy and dusty, so we just don’t bother, and instead shut down for the season once this change occurs.

Even if the colophony didn’t change in this way, winter temperatures would force production to end regardless because the sap becomes too thick to flow through the tree taps.
