Our hard maple lumber (acer saccharum or "sugar maple") is sourced from the best growing regions around the Great Lakes. In these regions hard maple trees are mostly second-growth, growing with such a high sap-to-heart ratio that they are often called “pencil heart” maple. This leads to consistently bright and attractive lumber, utilizing the brighter sap wood as compared to the darker colored heart wood. Our hard maple lumber is predominantly white, with very little to no brown heart.
Hard maple is known for its hardness, density and its resistance to wear and abrasion. It also offers a very bright color which makes it desirable for applications that require high contrast such as bowling alleys and dance hall or gymnasium flooring. Its hardness and appearance also make it an ideal material for projects ranging from musical instruments to toys and crafts. It also works in kitchen applications such as butcher blocks and cutting boards.
