Last summer I cut some dead pine and the next day I had quite a bit of skin irriation on my wrists and forearms. (red - burning/itching rash). A local builder said that was a result of a fungus in dead pine trees and is common. Has anyone else heard about this? I still have quite a few dead standing pines on my property that I would like to cut. It would probably be o.k. now that it is winter and I won't have exposed arms.
