I am looking to see if anyone can give me a ball park figure on the value of burls, or someone in New England that might be interested in buying burls. Each one is different, therefore it seems like selling by weight is common. I have a large yellow birch burl that is estimated around 2000 pounds with the burl and trunk. It’s 9’ in circumference and approx. 3’ x 3’ cross section. I am trying to figure out what a reasonable selling price would be.
Any thoughts would be appreciated, Thank you

Clearly a potential buyer would need some specialized equipment and imagination to see the possibilities. There might be more interest if it were broken down to sizes more manageable by woodworkers, i.e. slabs, turning blanks?

Holy smokes, that’s a mawnster! If you can cut some pieces out of it on demand, or maybe contact some of the retailers online, you might have more hits. One can find ~ 6 by 6 by 6 “cubes” at the wood boutiques for $35 – $50. You have a wooden gold mine there. Good luck finding a buyer.
