I had these cut about a week ago.  
They are recent blow downs and are red oak. Is this from ambrosia beetles ? .......
If so, do you think the sawyer planted them to make sure I come back and pay for some kiln time ?


The ambrosia beetles will leave as the wood dries.  They feed on fungus that they vector into the wood.  The fungus feeds on sugars in the wood.  


They are not a problem other than the little exit holes.
