Some of you living in the midwest may already know of this plague, but back in 2002 the Asian Emerald Ash Borer beetle made it into Michigan and has been since spread at alarming rates killing thousand upon thousands of ash trees in MI, OH, IN and now IL. Trees are dieing left and right. The states are trying to quarantine the spread by not even allowing the downed trees to be transported as fire wood. It just seems to me it has to be costly to try to dispose of these millions of board feet of otherwise solid good wood. Does the construction of kilns to turn these to lump make sense? The wood is essentially a problem thus is free for the taking. I guess getting the law to bend to allow kilns to burn in the algore world might be difficult. Just a thought for all you entrepreneurs out there!
