Ambrosia Maple


Not a distinct species of maple; but it describes discolouration caused by wood-boring ambrosia beetles. The majority of ambrosia maple is found in species of soft maple.

The beetles bore into the trunk of the tree, bringing with them the ambrosia fungi, which subsequently stains and discolours the surrounding wood. The discolouration can be very similar to spalted maple, though with ambrosia maple, the discolouration is centred around the boring paths of the beetles, and their entrance holes can usually be seen. This also can create a challenge when finishing the wood as these holes may need to be filled before a final finish is applied. Janka hardness of 700 to 950

Common Uses: Decorative items, specialty products, furniture, etc.
