Acer saccharinum (NE North America)
Maple is popular for its white to pale yellow brown colour, delicate brown figure and close fine grain which works to an excellent silky finish. It is well suited to jobs requiring good resistance to wear, such as work surfaces and flooring and it is equally suitable for good quality furniture and all general joinery. Maple is frequently chosen in place of European Sycamore, to which it is closely related by genus and appearance, being more freely available. Maple is also available manufactured as tongued and grooved strip flooring.
