Birch can be tapped as well.  I'm not sure which varieties, but I do recall
looking for Birch syrup a few years back. (never did find it, reasonably
priced.  I did find one source, but the shipping made it prohibitive)

David,
A couple years back there was an article in the NNGA proceedings 
about tapping walnuts to make syrup - and in some small taste tests 
that were conducted, the black walnut syrup was preferred over 
maple.  I suppose you could also tap hickory/pecan, since they're 
members of the same family.

I've made hickory syrup by boiling nuts, nutshell fragments, and 
husks, straining, adding sugar, and cooking down to desired 
consistency - and some people do the same thing with strips of 
exfoliatingbark pulled from shagbark, shellbark, and pignut hickories.
