Uncovered burlYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
Growth anomaly on the trunk of a standing dead tree or snag. This bulbuous protusion is known as a burl, and is usually a sign of trauma induced to the tree by either bacteria, insects, fungi, injury, genetic predisposition, or even environmental stress. It’s caraterized by a deformation of the wood grain in the form of a round outgrowth filled with knots from dormant buds.
Interestingly, this particular bump is no longer covered by the stem’s bark, revealing the actual structure of the wood, otherwise invisible.
