Hard Maple typically refers to one specific type of maple species: Acer saccharum. Hard Maple is also known as Rock Maple or Sugar Maple, (this is the same tree which is tapped to get maple syrup). Besides this one species of maple, the only other species that is sometimes considered in the grouping of Hard Maple in the United States is Black Maple (Acer nigrum). Black Maple is so closely related to Hard Maple that some even consider it to be a sub-species of the same tree, classifying it as: Acer saccharum subsp. nigrum.
