    I think I agree that it is Sugar Maple. The barks looks OK for Sugar maple, and the white wood does too. I have seen red streaking like that in the wood of Norway Maples, but I haven't cut many Sugar maples so I don't know if they can have it too.

    You'll be glad that this doesn't look like your other maple, sugar maple coals a hell of alot better than Red Maple/Silver Maple.

    never had any sugar maple but looks similar to the box elder maybe because BE is in the maple family.

    I have burned alot of silver maple and I just mix in some ash, elm, oak, whatever harder woods depending on the temp so it will last all night. The only time I go to 0 silver maple or BE in the mix is whens it's below 0 F but then again I consider over night 7 hours

    The green tint is a disease maples get.
