As long as it doesn’t sit on the forest floor and rot I am pretty good with any use of a downed tree. At it’s lowest it becomes skids, and pallets, heck maybe even wood pulp. As you have found sometimes chunks are used to burn. I would like to think this wood wasn’t good for lumber, but I may be being naive there. Often it is used as lumber, and when we get it in our hands we should treat it with the dignity it deserves. It took years getting to where it is now, and making something from it that may last a lifetime is noble work. In the few cases I had something to do with a downed tree, there is a lot of limb wood that makes poor lumber, but slabbed off to dry you can turn it, or make some tasty BBQ.

Think about that, meanwhile enjoy your ribs, that wood is making you happy another way :-)
