    Where they live or dead? If they have been dead awhile due to the emerald ash borer they may be full of other bugs now. That's what happened to the ash in Michigan, it's almost all gone now.

    They died this summer so some of should be good. If not it will still burn.

    Mill it if you can, it's going to become scarce and it makes fine hardwood lumber.

    I have been cutting ash on our farm for about a year. Using my Alaskan mill. We probably have 100 or more ash trees dead or dying. Most are not as big as these trees. We still have some with green leaves. Most trees are less than 18" but I am getting a few good boards.

    They come clear the power lines here on the ranch and I take full advantage of it. It's generally easy enough access for a truck and they actually leave a maintenance road of sorts, so I can drive right through and pick what I want.

    Most of our power lines are next to the road so access is easy most of the time. These logs are on the other side of the road from the house.
