The field maple (Acer campestre) forms sporadic burls at the base of the trunk or in the root area which can range from rather simple to extremely wild in appearance. The field maple grows in all of Europe and the Caucasus. It can reach a height of 65 feet and can live for up to 200 years. The wood is hard and dense and is used in furniture, making musical instruments, and turning.
The burl wood of the field maple is lighter and is mainly used as a veneer and fine crafts.

Finely grained wood may contain imperfections such as open knots, bark inclusions, or cracks that are typical of the species. These flaws come from the way the tree has grown and are completely natural. They can usually be filled with low-viscosity cyanoacrylate (super glue) and wood dust.
