Yes we are interested in fresh cut – 8 ft in diameter is a whole lot larger than we can manage. A burl that has one measurement of max 26” is the largest we need but on the other side of that we do take the smaller ones as well.
How much a lb are you asking FOB your location?

Im going to cut lots of big leaf maple burl caps, from 4in to 16in to full burls and burl table slabs, anyone intrested they are very reasonable. I would post pics but most people like them green,either way they are coming out soon.

Joseph, Here in the USA that tree is loaded with burl! Root balls and burls are two different animals. You can find burl in root balls, but burls can occur anywhere on a tree. The tree in the photo has the chance to be very special as the burl looks like it encompasses the entire trunk. Small burls that grow here and there on a tree are usually shallow (they do not extend into the trunk past its surface). When a tree seems to be all burl, as this tree does, it often will extend well into the trunk. Just want to clarify this for all that might not know the common terminology.

The majority of Burls I have found are in the root system .I have found from personal experience that burls are a part of a injury, decay, bug ,genetics,or old growth factor.the old growth ones are the ones to keep a eye out for in 16 years I have seen 3 only.By the looks of the picture the branches are completely bug eaten good sign what is below.Dirk if possible run a saw straight acroos the bottom dig out around to go as low as possible.If the base is solid you might be in luck.IF you have the equipment dig it out whole.The picture of the log is mango that burl was a abug defect the other is a lychee leg on a table I just finished that is old growth.
