Maple Wide Plank Flooring
Here in Vermont, maple trees are serious business. Our sugar maples produce the finest (and sweetest) pure maple syrup on the planet, and we’re proud of it. So much so that the maple has been deemed the official state tree of Vermont.
But aside from making our pancakes taste great, our maples are also the source of a variety of wood products, including furniture, bowling pins and lanes, guitar necks, and of course, stunning hardwood flooring.
Maple is used in the making of a variety of musical instruments, including violins, bassoons, and drums. It is a tonewood, which means that it carries sound waves well and produces a bright resonance. That outstanding resonance extends from the aural realm into the visual realm, naturally. Most obvious are those vibrant burnt orange and fiery red leaves that make such a show each autumn on Vermont’s hillsides. Similarly, when cut and sawn, maple’s predominantly straight subtle grain and rich amber hue brighten and enliven any space. Maple is probably not the best option if you are looking for a dramatic grain and a variety of visual textures in your flooring (if you are, consider instead walnut or white oak). If you want a radiant, harmonious look, maple is on the mark.
