The tooltip on the Tapper says, "Place on a maple, oak, pine or palm tree and wait for the reservoir to fill with product!"

When it says on, does it literally mean on the same square as the stump of the tree? Or do I need to place it in an immediately adjacent square? I've done the former, but after several days have seen no results. Am I doing something wrong?

You need to place the Tapper on the tree, and it needs to be on a fully grown tree (aka no stumps).

Prices and production time will vary based on the tree you attached it to, but it can take up to 8 days. I've included screenshots below showing the prices and production time of the different products (source), as well as an image showing the three different trees you can tap.

  • Can you keep the tapper on the same tree forever and will it just keep producing over and over and over? Does it matter what season it is?

  • @ChaseC As far as I know it will produce forever. The different seasons don't matter as far as I know, but I have yet to tap in winter.

    They work in winter too. I've used them in winter.

  • Worth noting that the game won't let you place not directly on the tree. Mar 9, 2016 at 22:10
  • How do you get the tapper to work because I placed it on the oak tree and I didn’t get anything in 3 seasons thus far I have given up. Dec 14, 2021 at 23:20
