Does any one out there know if you cut down a live tree how long it takes, approx., to air dry ? And if you cut down a standing dead timber, shouldnt the dead one be ready to use for construction ? I was told that a fresh cut tree wont shrink in length, but mostly in circumfrence, also don't you think bringing air dried tmbers into your construction project could introduce a bug or larvee problem ? Is there a way to combat the bug issue ? Seems like just spraying borate on them wouldnt debug them.
I'd love some input. Thanks to all. Greg Beck
