    If so....I gotta say, great find!
    It didn't grow there. The burl hunters offload truckloads of manzanita on the back of the wood yard where it sits waiting to be pressure washed.
    Very likely it was pushed aside and the blackberries grew over it.
    Our wood yard with whole burls, slabs and burl caps covers a few acres of the grounds here.

    This pile of manzanita burls is about 40 feet long.
    These are dirty ones waiting to get washed.

    'The burl hunters' sounds like another one of these 'reality' shows Nice stash, Mark!

    What I want to know is what Mark was doing in the bushes...

    I forgot, you live in a land where the burl is plentiful.

    does it need to be stabilized?

    It can go either way.
    It is extra hard wood, but it takes stabilizing very nicely too.

    I was able to get more out of this burl than I thought.
    But, I think I will send it to K&G for stabilizing just to play it safe.
    When they get back Son and Randy will get first choice, since they asked.
