I own a small scale sawmill in lower Michigan, I saw all types of hardwood trees. Is it a problem for me to bring oak trees back to my place and saw them?
Eaton County Michigan
This article from MDARD has some information about oak wilt and its transmission to healthy trees. https://content.govdelivery.com/accounts/MIDNR/bulletins/19443cf
Logs that came from trees infected with oak wilt could possibly serve as a source of spores to infect healthy oaks ( if the logs were visited by picnic beetles). The logs could be covered with plastic all the way to the ground to prevent access by picnic beetles.
