WOOD SPECIES (ORIGIN)
Acer Saccharinium (Canadian Maple) is a North American tree which can grow to a height of 25-40m with a trunk 3.5m in diameter.
An easily grown tree, the maple likes a well drained but not dry soil. This gives it a rustic look, emphasised by the initially grey or yellowish and later reddish bark which tends to come away in large flat chunks.
It has a large broad crown from which the flowers only emerge after the leaves. The fruit grow in double samaras.
Maple is a medium hard wood, naturally pale in colour with an even shade between light brown and pinkish white, which gives it a natural rather than satin sheen.
A hard stringy wood with average shrinkage it has a stippled vein pattern with stripes which may be dense and wavy but never simply straight.
