Prized for Centuries
Unlike most other hardwoods, the sapwood of Hard Maple lumber is most commonly used rather than its heartwood. Sapwood color ranges from nearly white, to an off-white cream color with a golden hue while the heartwood tends to be a darker reddish brown. Influenced by growing conditions, Hard Maple occasionally displays birdseye, curly or quilted grain patterns, or in rare circumstances, a combonation of the three. Figured Hard Maple has been prized for centuries for its beautiful appearnce, durability, and rarity.
King of the Acer Genus
In tree form, Hard Maple is usually referred to as Sugar Maple, and is the tree most often tapped for maple syrup. Sugar Maple’s leaves are the shape that most people associate with maple leaves; they typically have either 5 or 7 lobes, with vivid autumn coloring ranging from yellow to purplish red. Hard Maple ought to be considered the king of the Acer genus. Its wood is stronger, stiffer, harder, and denser than all of the other species of Maple commercially available in lumber form.
