This past weekend I saw an ad on Craigslist for free walnut firewood just needs to be split. Got a truck load of good pieces and a lot of crotch pieces, the smalls ones I've cut up so far look pretty darn good. Then yesterday I bought a stihl wood boss chainsaw to cut up my stuff. Friend called me today and told me he saw a big tree down with what he thought was a burl on it. Went there and it was a huge maple I assume tree, had a good sized burl and a couple smaller looking ones. Rang the door and they said I can cut all I want. Wish I could have cut more because everything I cut looked nice. Only problem besides the tree being huge and me not having used a chainsaw in awhile, the burl was about half way rotted out. I cut it in half and saw termites, cut out about all the rot. Threw all the nasty stuff in a garbage bag and throwing it away at work, one piece had some termites still in a small spot, sprayed them and filled the holes with bug killer. Killed everything I saw but still put it in a garbage bag and put it out back. Heard to put moth balls in it and once we get some of the 90 degree days it should kill everything?

Never heard about baking termites, but poisoning them is sure to work. Going tomorrow to pick up as many 10' - 12' willow logs as my trailer can handle.

Well that's just what I heard, I sprayed tons of bug killer on it so that should have worked but didn't want to risk it having it in my garage. We've had some pretty hot days here but this past week has been really nice, mid 70s as the high, feels like fall.

bbyeti, Just curious as to what you are going to use the willow for. I have passed up a lot of willow logs cause I didn't think they were worth sawing. Have I screwed up again?
