The sycamour maple is a large deciduous broad-leaved tree native to the Swiss mountains. Every autumn the characteristic five-lobed leaves turn the mountain forests into a firework of colors. The sycamour maple’s wood is relatively heavy and dense weighing 600kg per cubic meter. Due to the harsh mountain climate of the Axalp it takes over 100 years to grow a trunk of sufficient diameter. The combination of close grain, fine surface texture and dense/hard core make the sycamour maple the ideal choice for our OKTOWOOD.
Sycamour maple is ascribed cooling and decongestant effects in naturopathy.
