FACTS & HISTORY: Burl is a grain characteristic that happens in many types of wood. Burl wood results from harvesting a tree or a portion of a tree that has a burl. A burl is a growth on a tree formed from unsprouted bud tissue. The burl forms large, knobby looking growths on the base and trunk of the tree. Stress caused by injury, fungus, virus, or insects creates intense grain patterns. In addition, rapid growth in burls causes further stress and pressure on the wood.
