Brown maple is any heartwood of either soft or hard. Hard maple brown is mostly brown and tan with mineral pockets scattered throughout. Soft maple brown ranges in color from pink to green to brown and tan. It is MUCH harder to dry than the sap wood and does crack a lot more than the sap wood. The hardness is still the same as either of the species it came from.
