Wow. That is really scary.

I'm particularly alarmed by the fact that they are shipping this wood. Are they treating it? Even if the beetles have fled, the fungus is a threat to timber elsewhere...

They're prob. not treating the wood knowing lumber companies. The bottom line is all they're thinking of. I'm worried about the asian longhorn beetle infestation that's spreading from NY and the northeast!
