Sugar Maple

Arbor Walk #124

The ‘Monumentale’ cultivar incorporates a unique columnar shape to the Sugar Maple while still retaining its iconic leaves and fall colors. In addition to its use in the maple syrup industry, sugar maple wood is sought after for many specialized items, such as baseball bats, sports flooring, bowling pins, pool cues, and electric guitars.
