American Hardwood


Maple: also called sugar maple in North America grows up to 10-45 meters (30-145 ft) in height. The sapwood is light creamy white sometimes with darker colored pith flecks. The heartwood varies from light to dark reddish brown. The wood has a close fine, uniform texture and is generally straight-grained. Some maple wood has a specifically highly decorative wood grain, which occurs randomly in individual trees of several species, and often cannot be detected until the wood has been sawn, though it is sometimes visible in the standing tree as a rippled pattern in the bark. Maple is known for its dense and hard wood which weighs about 740 kg per cubic meter. Maple wood is normally used in furniture, flooring, music instruments and sports material.
