York Street Maple

york-street-maple-2.jpg

 

 

This 35 year old Norway maple tree grew on York Street between Jonathon Edwards College and Branford College and across the street from the University Theater and the Rose Alumni House.  The tree died and was cut down by the city of New Haven.  The wood has remarkable color variation from the creamy white typical of maple to a color that approaches purple.  Because the tree was standing dead wood, much of the wood is heavily spalted resulting in beautiful margin lines in the wood.
