Bringing this thread back, burning Horse Chestnut that has Leaf Miner and Bleeding Canker, would this bring back any reprecussion’s ?

 

Taken down a large Horse Chestnut today and deciding whether I should take a load for myself, (already aware it’s not the greatest firewood)

Get it split and dry , mix it with other stuff . All I can say really .

My thoughts aswell, reading online about disposal of bleeding canker and says burn on site or bury. So can’t see the harm in taking for firewood, going to be stored near no trees in barn.

Without checking I think burn or bury on site is an attempt to contain the infection in the locale.

 

One of the big vectors of pathogens is moving timber for firewood (private use or commercially). The Emerald ash borer is a classic example 

 

But saying all that, bleeding canker is probably so wide spread now that the online advice is out of date.
