Ambrosia Maple

Botanical name: (Acer Saccharinum)

Ambrosia maple comes from regular soft and hard Maple trees that have been infested by the ambrosia beetle. The small beetle bores a network of tunnels and short galleries called cradles. A fungus is responsible for the blue, gray and brown streaks and decorative patch work that accompany each tunnel and adjacent wood. The streaks and patch work add a unique look to this hardwood without affecting its structural integrity. This wood is mostly found in the central part of the Eastern United States. The tunnels made from the beetles are extremely small. The infestation of the ambrosia beetle is terminated during the drying process and will not start again in dry wood as the beetle needs somewhat wet wood to survive.
