My great aunt has some land with some really old pecan trees. A few of them died in the drought from two years ago. I went out there over the weekend and found some spalted pieces. Now I am not sure what to do with it? I was thinking of cutting it in to two inch slices and letting it sit a while in my garage. The tree it came off of was dead and it seems to be pretty dry. Some of it looks like it definitely needs to be stabilized.
