Masur Birch also called Alpine Burl or Karelian Burl after the Finnish province of Karelia where it is often found. It is not a particular species of birch, but is rather a grain figure that is most commonly seen in Downy Birch and Silver Birch. The figure in Masur Birch, is rumored to be the results of an attacked by the larvae of the Agromyzia Carbonara beetle. Actually the pattern in Masur Birch is not from any form of larvae. The pattern comes from the bark and/or knots growing into the tree instead of out of it. This wood is very rare.
