I just pick up about a cord of pitch pine from a friend. One of the trees was dead with some holes in it and i took it anyway (i'm new to this).The rest is freshly cut with no holes. While splitting the stuff with the holes in it i noticed white grubs burrowed into the wood pretty deep. Also the outer wood was a grayish brownish almost putty or thick mud consistency. I would have to assume this wood is junk and i should get rid of it. Deeper into the middle it's not bad but i don't know if it's worth the trouble.
