JAM_5582 The round knobs on these trees are called Burls. They are tree tumors caused by damage to a tip or bud. This causes growth cells to divide more rapidly than normal and over time forms these swelling on the trees.

Amazing Larry! I never saw a forest with such a concentration of Burls. Only one here and there... ;-)

Best wishes, Tom

Hi Thomas. We have many burls in the forests here, but the spruce forests along the coast seem more prone to burls. S pozdravem Larry
