Modeling sap tree is a good idea, so that we could have lacquerware, maple syrup, rubber and others.

There have been a few ideas in this regard for tree sap.

Tree tapping using a tool (a spile) // This also has its own bibliography with much of the older examples.

But i would still like to see it come into play, Meph and Roses are currently prodding DFhack in the hopes of making a way to simulate sapling planting, by summoning a sapling over a workshop then having it automatically dissolve the building after the job is done.
