Harvest the burl only when its due if you can , leave the trunk for another burll.

can you cut a burl off a tree without hurting it?

Do you just “hunt” burl and sell them for processing or do you process also. If you do I would love to see some pictures of before it was cut and after it was made into a veneer.

If you cut the burl off the tree it would hurt the tree but it would heal however I believe that it would shorten the tree’s life. I only take trees that are coming out for contruction or home owners who want the intire tree removed.

But I do harvest and then process. I have a vidoe in my profile or you can go to youtube.com and type in oregonburls and I have 2 videos there.
Thanks guys

What caliber and or shot size do you use to hunt burls? I assume you have to track them and not call them in. Just being silly or stupid, you make the call. Good looking finds and I like your attitude of use it but don’t just go cut because you can. Conservation is my approach. Great work, I’ve seen lots of great stuff on here from you, keep it up and thanks for the post. BTKS
