Hi, what other species do you tap besides sugar maple?

My conditions are not great for tapping (too far South), but I do it anyway on the 
one(!) big sugar maple I have.  For the first time we tried a wild maple, and the 
syrup was a bit different but good.  I'd love to know what else I can tap for syrup.

I tried boiling the profuse sap of a cut hardy kiwi vine once.  Just the smell in the 
house made me nauseous and sick-feeling.
