I have an old, half-dead tree about 30 feet from the house. I plan to remove it due to it's size close position to the house. Ants (probably carpenter) are noticeable on and around the tree, but I have very few in the house on a random basis.
If I remove the tree, and stack the wood somewhere on my property (100' x 100' lot), do I need to protect the house from invasion? Should I treat the cut wood or dying tree with chemicals? Or am I better off having someone take the wood away?
Just want to get rid of the risk of a tree falling on my house, without creating the risk of an infestation.
