The Hairy Vitex - Vitex obovata - is a small tree that grows in Southern Africa on rocky hillsides, reaching a maximum height of 7 metres with a stem diameter of approximately 15 cm.
When the tree is young the bark and leaves are hairy, hence its name.
A burl is a tree growth in which the grain has grown in a deformed manner and may contain small voids.It is commonly found in the form of a rounded outgrowth on a tree trunk or branch that is filled with small knots from dormant buds and results from a tree undergoing some form of stress such as an injury, virus or fungus. These features produce beautiful highly defined knotty patterns and are highly sought after for small wood turning projects.
