White maple growing forests

growing slower, stronger and whiter.

Michigan’s Lake Superior defines the northern hardwoods region.

Longer winters with lake-effect snow create slower maple growth seasons during shorter, pleasant summers.

The result is maple that grows naturally whiter, is extremely strong and undeniably one-of-a-kind.
