HARFORD TWP. — With the sugaring season ahead, the Holleran family should be installing sap-gathering lines on the mature maple trees growing on their property on Three Lakes Road.

They’re not going to bother this year. They don’t see a point in tapping trees that could soon fall to the chain saws of Constitution Pipeline Co., which covets a strip of their land roughly 125 feet wide to build a natural gas pipeline to New York.
