The Dyer Oak burl grew to record size in the fertile soils of Oregon’s southern Willamette Valley. With a massive 9 ft. diameter, it is a closer match in size to a huge Redwood burl. This was the largest known Oak burl in the Northwest, weighing in at a colossal 28,900 lbs. (14.5 tons). Special heavy duty equipment was required to load this on a low boy semi trailer which had to be flagged for a “wide load”. It is common to have nice burl, fiddleback and interesting color shades that resemble Australian Black Heart Sassafras. Own your piece of this historic burl today!
