Completely Stumped
« on: February 08, 2019, 09:46:35 AM »
This one has me completely stumped. Iíve shown it to a lot of people, who also donít know what it is. If itís not one thing itís another thatís throwing people off. There is a sticky sap coming from under the bark.

Two things I should add.  Itís not an evergreen (itís leaves had shed) and itís harder than white oak.  Canít be scratched on the end fibers with my knife.

Kinda resembles red maple with a lot more mineral than normal... or whatever youd call the stain streak.

I think the wood in question is too straight grained to be a gum.  Note the feathers and flames in lynns second post where the grain spirals.

I am confident that it is red maple.

The sweet gum I sawed was a first for Me. Very uncommon up here, in fact it came from N.J. However I sure have sawed red, silver, Norway and hard maple and never saw sticky sap. The sap on soft maple is like water.

Yeah and if you leave two or more sap filled boards stacked together with no air space for a few days youll actually start to smell the sugars in them ferment a little.  It smells like rotten fruit or cider starting to turn. Flies, gnats, ants and yellow jackets all over it.

Looks like chinese elm.  Splits very stringy?, breaks off branches in ice storms?

Well, a non native species. Can't expect the average local to know about trees that don't belong. Dawn redwood is about the only one for me.
