Maple, Black Sugar by Redoute Botanical Art Print

Fine Art Prints of Distinction


A Museum Quality Botanical Print of The Black Sugar Maple by Redoute for the book Sylva of North America. This tree was described in this early American Botanical reference thus. This tree is so called because of the darker leaves it has than the true sugar maple. The wood is similar to other Sugar Maple species but is coarser grained and is less brilliant when polished. It is considered the second best wood for fuel, trailing on the hickory. In some markets it is used in the making of Windsor Chairs. Its most important use though is in the making of sugar and syrups which is sold in great quantities in the city markets of the United States. Due to the shape of the tree and beautiful foliage, it makes a proper tree for forming avenues and adorning parks and gardens or in any situation where shelter from the sun is required as it provides a thick, heavy shade.
