Solid American & European Maple Worktops - FSC Certified

Acer pseudoplatanus / Acer saccharum

Maple is a beautiful creamy white wood, giving a really distinctive look to your worktop, with its pale pink tinge.

The wood itself usually has a straight grain but can sometimes be wavy and fine brown lines give an attractive growth ring figure on plain sawn surfaces.

About our Maple

Maple is a broadleaf deciduous tree, native to the UK. Growing to approximately 20 metres high, Maples tend to live up to 350 years old.

Maples are popular in gardens and parks due to the fact that it is compact in where it grows but also due to its beautiful autumn colours. Its flowers are green, yellow, orange or red, tending to flower in late winter or early spring.

The Maple’s fruit or seed is what tends to be what everyone remembers – known to children (and some adults) as ‘helicopters’, simply because of the way that they spin as they fall to earth, to help spread their seeds as far as possible. It actually inspired the American Army in World War II to develop an air drop carrier, based on the Maple’s ‘helicopter’ seed.

And let’s not forget that the sap of a maple tree can be used to make maple syrup – not something that we’ve tried at Puretree just yet!

Traditionally, maple has been used for a number of uses – including making musical instruments (particularly harps), wood carving and turning.

Resourcing our wood carefully

All of the wood that we use has FSC certification. This means that we can trace the origin of the wood from the forest to your finished worktop. This ensures the quality of the wood itself and on a wider scale, we know that as a business, we are working ethically with social and environmental benefits.

Maple Worktop Grades

Unlike many online retailers, we offer a comprehensive choice of grades, so that you can design your perfect worktop.

Character Grade

Our character worktops are visually striking and contain natural colour variations between the staves.

The wood can contain small knots, some of which may have been filled with a suitably coloured wood filler. You may find that there are more variations in the grain patterns with this grade.

Nature Grade

No tree is the same and our nature grade worktops reflect this.

The wood can contain small knots, some of which may have been filled with a suitably coloured wood filler. Some of these knots may have some of the natural variation of colour and grain that occurs within that particular wood.
