Yellow Box Burls are harvested in southeastern Australia from medium to tall trees in the Eucalyptus family. Lumber is harvested and used for outdoor projects such as fence posts and bridge parts. It is brown in color and very heavy, dense, and rot resistant. Yellow Box lumber isn’t popular for woodworking, but the burls are prized for their unique figure and color.
