hi everyone, I have two large horse chestnuts in my garden,both heavily infected with Phytophthore [bleeding cankers]. unfortunately, both will have to be felled this winter as there is no cure. my question is, can the infected timber be used in my wood burning stove. chestnut can normally be used in wood burners but will the infection be a problem ?

I built a pond 8mx4m only six months ago and feel so lucky (i know things can go horribly wrong). afer filling and waiting for a month i put in many different water and bog plants plus two small bales of barly straw, water beetles and other insects showed up first followed by dragon flies and in september a frog and last week my wife spotted a newt.its the best thing we have done in the garden and gives us lots of pleasure
