Give the monkey sugar! A growth variant of the sugar maple (Acer saccharum) is the highly sought Qulited Maple, which is very decorative and sexy because of its cloudy pattern. Last week we were in the sawmill with a decent lot of Quilted Maple. With a very nice result!

Sugar Maple (Quilted Maple) (Acer saccharum) ©Bruce Marlin The quilted maple is not a separate species, but a derivative of the sugar maple (Acer saccharum). The gorgeous 3-D, quilted effect occurs only sporadically at the base of the sugar maple trunk. In connection with the brown lines of the early and late growth, this results in a very spectacular effect. This natural phenomenon is very rare and therefore very desirable and relatively expensive. The sugar maple grows in North America and can reach heights of 135 feet. The tree is the main source of maple syrup, of course.
The wood is dense and hard and is also called hard maple, rock maple, or sugar maple.
