Box Elder Maple Burl



Box Elder (Acer negundo)The box elder (Acer negundo) is native to eastern North America, but has been naturalized in Central Europe since 1688. It can grow up to about 50 feet tall.
The wood is rather light, while the burl is bright, light, and often streaked with red veins. It can sometimes deliver a beautiful grain that looks simply gorgeous when polished. It is easy to work with and is used for decorative crafts.


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.
