Just did a serch here on LJ looking for info on brown hard maple. I’ve been cutting some sugar maple that has a very large amount of dark brown heartwood….It’s mostly dark brown with very little light colored sapwood and other trees have very little brown heartwood and mostly light colored sapwood. This is an eight acre plot with pine and mixed hardwoods. Really made no sense. I wonder if the amount of sunlight has anything to do with this. Slower growing trees (less sunlight) may have more heartwood with faster growing trees (more sunlight) have less heartwood. Anyone know or have an other opinion?
