i agree that it is not necessarily twice as old, but i think it is probably substantially older than the small trees. they are all from the same area. i dont know exactly where the tree i counted came from but it was within a maximum of 100yds. i have a handful of over 16" trees, but they are scattered over about a 100yd radius. hopefully they dont die soon, but if one does i will count the rings. maybe i should count one of the 6" trees that are pushing 85' tall.

Are you able to send these dead trees of to the mill?  If not do you have another way of dealing with the logs?  The reason why I ask is that our local mill will be shutting down soon and I have seen an increase in bark beetle kill in ponderosa pine and I don't know what to do with all of the dead kills.  I need some ideas and I can only use so much lumber myself.

thanks
Always try it twice, the first time could've been a fluke.

there is a mill that buys aspen logs, but they only take green, and it is worth only slightly more than the trucking to get it there.

do you chip them or do you burn them for firewood or do you have a nice size deck that's going to rot?

i sell firewood. but i only have about 14 cords of logs and 6 cords of split wood. around here i could leave the logs in the deck for at least 3 or 4 years before i had any loss to rot. logs left on the ground in the woods are good for up to 3 years.

 treeline here is about 12,100'. i am at 8600'

if i cut the conks themselves off of the trees that only have one or two, will the tree continue to rot or will the rot stop?
 as of today i am at 221 trees, only a handful of green ones with conks, but now that i am beginning to accept that alot of green trees are infected, i will be taking alot of them. cut one tree today, a dead one, that my 20" bar just barely cut through.
