Sugar Maple Lumber Products

Menominee Tribal Enterprises Sells Hard Maple Wood for all IndustriesSugar Maple Leaf

Hard Maple, often called Sugar Maple or Rock Maple when it’s in tree form. The species’ sapwood is most often used as lumber, instead of the heartwood. It thrives in the Great Lakes region, stretching from the upper Midwest all the way to east coast of the US and far north into Canada. The Menominee Forest is an excellent environment for Sugar Maple to grow and MTE has been committed to the sustainable harvesting of the tree.

Hard maple is the wood of choice for many flooring manufacturers and also is used for veneer, pulpwood, baseball bats, cutting boards and butcher blocks, and even musical instruments. It is also the main source for maple syrup.

Characteristics of Hard Maple Wood

With an even texture and straight grain, maple is a very versatile wood. Its density makes it slightly more difficult to work with than a soft maple or pine. Rare occurring figures such as quilted patterns, curls and bird’s eye patterns make hard maple a sought after material for furniture, veneers and instruments. These examples can fetch a higher price due to their unique aesthetic characteristics.
