a tree company just cut down a very large pin oak in my neighbors yard and the neighbor didn’t want anything to do with the wood and the guys were nice enough to cut off all the burls on this tree for me. and when i say all i mean there were a lot of burls. i probably have 25 burls sitting in my yard right now, some small some large. the largest of which probably weighs in around 200 pounds. i did a little checking and found that burls are sold by their green weight, but beyond that i really don’t know much about it.
i’m wondering if anyone here has experience with burls, i know i need to paint the cut end to avoid checks and cracks and get them off the ground to avoid rotting. is anyone interested in buying any of these burls? i’ll post some pics manana or soon thereafter. please PM if you’re interested in buying any of this after you see the pics.
