What is Spalted wood? Spalting is any form of wood coloration caused by fungi. Although primarily found in dead trees, spalting can also occur in living trees under stress. Although spalting can cause weight loss and strength loss in the wood, the unique coloration and patterns of spalted wood are sought by woodworkers.1.
Spalted Maple can be considered a Vermont Exotic. The widely varying patterns of the spalting of the maple is the process of organic destruction. We have to catch it when it has gone far enough to be beautiful and not so far gone as to be rotted.
