Apple Tree

Apple Tree (Malus x domestica) ©Viola SonansApple trees (Malus) form a genus of about 50-55 species in the temperate belt of the Northern Hemisphere (Europe, North America, and Asia). They are members of the rose family (Rosaceae). This does not include the various hybrids created from cross-propagating various species. These can be in any case very difficult to distinguish.
The wood of the domesticated apple (Malus x domestica), the best known and most significant species, is dense, hard, and of moderate weight.


Find the right wood by appearance!
Our wood atlas makes it significantly easier to find the right wood for your projects.
But, as you know, wood is a natural product and what us shown here is only
a sample and the actual piece may vary in color and pattern.

Tip: Use the left and right arrows to navigate; to select the wood currently show, click on the link below the image. The wood atlas is by no means exhaustive and is constantly being expanded. But, on the whole, almost all the woods we have in stock are shown.
