Wood Description
The sapwood of Soft Maple varies in color from creamy white to greyish-white, and is sometimes marked with darker colored pith flecks. Although not as rich as Hard Maple, the heartwood is similar in color, with reddish-brown tones ranging from light to dark. The growth rings of Soft Maple are not as distinct as those of Hard Maple. Soft Maple is straight-grained, without the exceptional burled or birds-eye characteristics that can be found in Hard Maple. The wood is moderately hard and strong but less so than Hard Maple. Curly Maple is more commonly found in Soft Maple than in Hard Maple.

Region
Soft Maple grows in all three regions, although it is most abundant in the North. The Soft Maple grows throughout the eastern United States, for the most part, with some species thriving in the Pacific Northwest (Oregon, Washington state), as well as areas of western Canada.

Working Properties
Soft Maple is less hard and stiff than Hard Maple, and low in stiffness and shock resistance. It machines well, with minimum blunting to tools, and can be nailed or screwed satisfactorily.

Main Uses
Soft Maple is commonly used in furniture, kitchen cabinets, turnings, plywood veneers and decorative veneers. Soft Maple takes stain quite well and is often used as a popular substitute for Cherry, Beech or Birch.
