This is one of our locally grown North American species. In order to be stable the wood must be quartersawn. Sycamore trees can grow to be one of the biggest domestic timbers in North America and are often left to grow to full maturity because the wood is very difficult to split for firewood and most sawmills don’t quarter saw. Sycamore produces beautiful quartersawn lumber in a color range from light tan to an orange brown.
