Australian Burls


Kim Mehta

Australian burls, which form on different varieties of Eucalyptus trees, can come in a wide vareity of shapes, sizes and colors. Species such as Brown Mallee, Red Mallee, Red Coolibah, and are among the common burls regularly harvested in Southeastern Australia. ​​


Burls are like a wart growth that commonly reoccurs on these Australian trees. Because the burl can be removed from the tree without harming the tree, this is a popular and sustainable source of wood for woodworkers.

West Penn Hardwoods carries a large supply of burls in several different forms. Full caps are very popular for turning bowls. They are marked with a weight at cutting and are sold by the kg. We currently have many of our burl species on sale, click here for more information.
