pine beetles
« on: December 08, 2004, 09:39:07 AM »
I have set my mill up in a stand of large standing pines. I know the mill activities encourage pine beetles in the loss bark and all. My question is am I taking a big chance on these beetles getting into my standing timber? I will not be cutting the standing timber for a few years, but I am sawing a lot of timber on my mill and my slab pile and all is there in my standing timber so I got to thinking I might not be doing a good thing.

You are increasing your risk but not much more than if you did a thinning. The trick is to keep everything down on ground level. Don't let your slab pile get to high and keep your sawdust spread out. If you have another place to set up than I would move but some times we do what we have to.

Good advice there.  Try and sell slabs for mulch or get rid of it altogether.  Some landscapers actually will give money for them and the sawdust as well.

Can you save a pine tree once pine beetles get into it?
