WDHLT15,
OK, wood does not form in the center of the tree- It forms from the cambium in on the outside of the tree. The oldest wood in the tree in closest to the center. Juvenille wood is sapwood. I have a degree in forestry and have taken every wood chemistry and compisition class I could take and I believe everything you said in that first paragraph is wrong. But then again, what does it matter? It doesn’t, keep cutting done maples and think whatever you want. I will think what I believe and at the end of the day that maple will still end up in one of our projects.
