Re: ash burrs 2 ???

If these burrs are at grazing height i'm pretty sure they are the result of shoots being grazed off over a period of many years. We have many such ash around these parts. Presumably holes are left by scar tissue?

Anyone turned any?

Re: ash burrs 2 ???

It might have helped if you had mentioned in your other thread on this topic that the burr in your picture had been de-barked, I for one thought I was looking at it as it had come off the tree. The burrs you show in this thread with bark on are not uncommon on ash trees. Some trees seem to be very prone to developing such growths.

Hi
Yes Maybe I should have said the piece was de barked
But what I am trying to find out is what causes the growths
