  The Proctor Maple Research Center is a Field Research Station of the Department of Plant Biology in the College of Agriculture & Life Sciences at the University of Vermont.

The Proctor Maple Research Center was established in 1946 with the donation of the former Harvey Farm in Underhill Center, Vermont, to the University of Vermont by Governor Mortimer Proctor.  Research has centered on the sugar maple tree (Acer saccharum Marsh.) and its products--sap and syrup.
