It is a hardwood timber found mainly in Northeastern North America. It is known by different names in different regions and Acer saccharum is its scientific name. Maple has many species: hard maple, black maple, soft maple, red maple, silver maple, pacific maple, and others. The trees are average in height and are about 80-115 ft high and have a 2-3 ft trunk diameter. The average dried weight is about 705 kg/m3 and it has a Janka rating of 1,450 lbf (6,450 N), which makes it very hard and heavy. Because maple is almost non-durable, it is not of much use as a heartwood, however, the sapwood is widely used in the paper industry and for veneer, cutting boards, workbenches, and other things. Drying is easy but takes time.
The heartwood is dark reddish-brown. The sapwood is nearly white or reddish. The wood can often be seen with patterns like curly, quilted and birdseye (birdseye). It generally has a straight grain, but it can also be wavy. The texture is fine and even. The wood is generally easy to work with, though its high density can cause trouble in some cases. It turns, glues, polishes, and finishes well. Maple is non-durable in terms of resistance, is easily perishable and can be attacked by insects. It is easily available at a low to moderate price. However, the figured variants can be sometimes expensive to buy or import.
Maple is good for a number of uses. It is primarily used in the paper industry as pulpwood, i.e. the wood to make pulp for paper. Other than that, it is also used for making flooring for basketball courts and dance floors and even in residential and commercial premises. Other uses include veneers, musical instruments like piano actions, furniture, baseball bats, turnery, cutting boards, workbenches, plywood, panelling, butcher blocks, turned objects, and speciality wood items.
