NANFA-- redwood burls

To follow up on the requests I received ages ago about where to get
redwood burls: I found a place that still sells them on my last trip
to California. A lot of the places that used to sell redwood stuff
are, of course, out of business, since there are so few redwood trees
left to supply them. Burls live for quite a while in water, sending
up a mess of sprouts. When the sprouts get about a foot long, you can
plant the burl in dirt and get a neat redwood bush that shouldn't
require you to own an estate to accommodate its full size. I'm happy
to say that no trees lose their lives to give up a small slice of
burl. It's like taking a cutting from a plant for vegetative

Here's the only place I found:

Chimney Tree
1111 Avenue of the Giants

P.O. Box 86
Phillipsville, CA 95559

Tami Boughner

The owner wasn't there the day we passed through but the person
behind the counter said she thought the owner would send burls to
folks who requested them.

Sorry it took me so long to get to back to folks on this.
