This is very good question. Usually the wooden decks are made out of maple, but story doesn't end there. The best wood material for decks is Canadian Rock Maple, but only few manufacturers make them. If the top layer of deck is stained in color you can be 90% sure sure, that it's regular maple, if maple at all, and the deck will wear out much faster then Canadian maple. I know that Element, Almost, Reinbe and Baker uses high quality Canadian maple, that will long last and provide much greater pop then usual maple or other wood.
