Quote from: EOLogtruckin on February 10, 2024, 11:27:33 AMHi everyone, I ran into some discoloring on some Doug Fir I am milling. I'm not a tree wizard or even a tree whisperer, but I think our local Doug Fir is classified as Interior, not Coastal, if it matters. I wonder if it is starting to rot. Something I haven't ran into before. It seems to be mostly in the sapwood. The logs were cut in Dec and Jan a little over a year ago. They were put in a deck on skids with some Ponderosa and sprinkled through out the summer. Frost every month of the year and very few days above 85 in the summer, here at the house. What do y'all say?

This discolored wood definitely has a distinct smell that is different from the "normal" DF wood. When sawing Ponderosa it all smells the same to me, blue stain or not.

The last 10 feet or so of the log has some critters under the bark. Can someone ID them for me? Do they signify anything like length of time tree has been dead, or cut, or anything else of value?
