A burl is a cool-looking, extraneous growth on a tree. Ugly on the outside, but magnificent on the inside, it can form on any type of tree! A burl usually grows when the tree is undergoing some stress, whether it be an injury, virus, or fungal infection. The tree's growth hormones are disrupted and, consequently, it produces those colorful looking lumps and swirls.
These characteristics make burls absolutely awesome when combining them with epoxy . All of our burls vary in species and some may need to be de barked before use with epoxy . Our burls range from 20mm through to 70mm
