A burl is a growth that forms over a long period of time, to cover an injury that has occurred to a tree. An insect boring a hole into the tree trunk usually causes the injury. Burls yield a very peculiar and highly figured wood, prized for its beauty by many; its rarity also adds to its expense. The burl timber is very hard and has a shorter wood grain pattern than the main trunk wood.
Each burl is a one off and they are in high demand by our clientele.
