Trade Name

Golden Madrone, Musk Burl

Similar Woods

Elm Burl

Origin

South-East Asia

Range

Presumably China, Vietnam, possibly Laos and Cambodia. Although known as Musk Burl in Australia and Tasmania under the botanical name of Olearia argophylla, it is very questionable that this in fact is the same species. Till today, it has not been possible to come to an exact classification.

Uses

Exclusive interior architectural woodwork. Relatively unknown in Europe compared to other burls, as this species has been imported to only a few years ago. For this reason, acceptance and and use of Golden Madrone is rather limited so far.

Colour

Brown
