Sugar maple wood is dense, strong, and visually appealing. It is used in cabinetry, furniture, and interior design. The sap is used to make maple syrup, and the fruits/seeds are eaten by wildlife. Sugar maple is also popular as an ornamental.
Maple is also less expensive than other hardwoods such as cherry or walnut. A highly important ecological role is played by sugar maple, which provides food and shelter for a diverse range of life. These often consume the bark, twigs, or fruit of the sugar maple, white-tailed deer, moose, porcupine, squirrels, and snowshoe hare. These songbirds, woodpeckers, and cavity nesters utilize the sugar maple as a place to live. Flowering occurs in early spring after 30–55 growing degree days and the blooms are yellow-green with no petals. It's most common for sugar maples to begin blossoming when they are between 10 to 200 years old. A pair of pomegranates (winged seeds). The seeds are roughly spherical with a diameter of 7 to 10 millimeters (or 9/32 to 13/32 of an inch). The wings are just a few centimeters long. To break down the hard-shell covering around the seeds, they have to spend 45 days at temperatures of less than 4°C (39°F). A. saccharum germination occurs slowly during the winter when the soil has warmed and frost has passed. This species and the black maple are closely related; nevertheless, some experts segregate this species as Acer nigrum, which is frequently called black maple. Additionally, some botanists regard the western American bigtooth maple (Acer grandidentatum) as a variant or subspecies of sugar maple. When it comes to the sugar maple, people call it the "rock maple" or the "hard maple." While the “sugar” common name is a compliment to the tree's sweet, delicious maple syrup product, it also serves as a nod to the trees' syrup-making abilities.
