hi folks.  my two horse chestnut trees are badly infected with bleeding canker disease and i have to fell them. i am told that i cannot use the timber in my woodburning stove, can anyone confirm, yes or no ? advice would be much appreciated.

Sadly it should be disposed of as described here http://www.forestry.gov.uk/fr/INFD-6L4ET9 

 

It's such a shame because seasoned chestnut wood is normally ideal for longburners as it give out a good heat - it's less than ideal for open fires as it spits out.
