Is this maple?
« on: April 18, 2019, 07:10:17 PM »
A friend and his son brought this to the mill today to cut cookies out of.  He rescued it from going to the dump.  I said it looked like maple to me, but I really don't know.  All the rest of the tree was already gone so no leaves to look at.  What do you think.

 

 

He plans to make some small tables and such out of it.  Banjo

i cross cut some maple today and that looks the same. Was there a woodpecker in the area, looks like a pattern of holes.  Of course I once thought I was cutting a maple based on the pile it came from, and it was a pin oak.  So i think i may still be on "probation"!    ;)

I don't know where it came from, but it definitely has been visited by a woodpecker.  I was glad I got it cut with out busting a blade.  I can get 28 inches between the mega rollers and I hit it lightly on one pass.  Banjo

I can't tell what kind of tree it is from the photos, but those horizontal rows of holes are typical of sapsucker woodpeckers. They are called sap wells as they exude sap, which the birds lap up. In heavily forested areas hummingbirds follow the sapsuckers around and drink the sap too.
