Sorry I didn't answer before. I've spent the last couple weeks in a
joyous holiday frenzy of playing with my kids, spoiling them with toys
and treats, and stuffing myself with holiday cheer, cookies, candies and
big dinners. :) Now it's back to reality, cleaning up the huge mess
we've made of the house and trimming off the extra weight the holiday
extravagence has led too. :)

Back to the question. Redwood burl is a knot like thing in the tree.
They sell them in and around the Redwood Forest. I think they just save
them off of the trees they cut. If you put one in water little redwood
tree fronds grow out of it. They look like mini forests on a mountain of
wood. They're really neat. It's too hot here for me to be able to
actually grow a redwood tree, but they are really pretty trees, even the
ones that aren't huge. It's my understanding that occasionally you can
get the burl to grow into a tree, but usually they are a temporary
thing. Maybe someone from Northern CA can chime in and give us more
