A log that size will be fine, especially if it was alive when i came down and still has bark on it. You may find that it has some beetles living it in though. There are several types of wood boring beetles that only attack dead or dying trees. The sooner you have it milled the less damage they’ll do.

And make sure that it doesn’t have any nails in it, especially if the tree was growing in your yard. Not fun to find with your saw mill blade or chain saw mill.
