Ambrosia maple is technically not a specific species of maple, but is a general description of any type of maple that was infested by ambrosia beetles. The beetles bore into the tree, and with it brings a fungus that discolors the wood. Ambrosia maple is considered to be a decorative feature giving the wood additional character. As you may see, some of the pieces will have holes caused by the beetle, but the beetle is long gone.
