The fashion for creating high style furniture out of native timbers was popularized by George Bullock (1777-1818). Pollard oak refers to oak burls that are thinly sliced and made into veneers. The burls are growths rather like tumors that grow on the trees and which are harvested and made into veneers. Pollarding refers to a method of tree trimming which is normally done to Linden tree and not to oaks.
