Birdseye Maple - Acer saccharum

Birdseye Maple is not technically a distinct species of Maple, but rather, it’s a figure that’s occasionally found in Maple trees.  It’s named “birdseye” is because the figure resembles small bird’s eyes in the grain.    The figure is reportedly caused by unfavorable growing conditions for the tree. The maple attempts to start numerous new buds to get more sunlight, but with poor growing conditions the new shoots are aborted, and afterward a number of tiny knots remain
