Now THAT'S what I call a burl

California white (aka valley) oak (Quercus lobata), at the entrance to a vineyard near Atascadero, CA.  A giant tree, with a serious burl.

(Click to enlarge)

No, the tree is not growing horizontally (although many oaks in California do seem to).  I took the photo on my phone in portrait format, pivoted it before saving the file to my computer, but &^%#$@*&^@ blogger only wants to display it horizontally.  Doh.

No matter how you view it, it's pretty dang cool.  Have a great weekend!
