What is Burl Wood?

Burl is an abnormal grain pattern or growth in or on a tree. Burl develops in response to stress on the tree. Physical, environmental or an invasive stress. The result is spiral, twisted or swirled grain pattern/ growth called "burl". Burl is named for the appearance of the grain pattern. Birdseye burl, Ribbon figuring, Curlyand Cluster burl.  Some burls are bumps on the side of the tree. Others are throughout the trunk of the tree. Burls can get so large they inhibit the growth of the tree. Highly prized and sought after for their dramatic grain. All burls are rare!!
