Port McNeill is a small town in the North Island region of Vancouver Island, in British Columbia, Canada. It is home to the world's largest burls.

A burl (or burr) is a large knot or wart-like outgrowth on the trunk of a tree, that happens when the tree undergoes some form of stress caused by an injury, virus or fungus.
