Hello! We live in southern Utah. We had a pine log entrance with large pine logs for uprights and a log across the top. We went up to leave our house and here it was lying on the ground. If it had fallen on someone or something they would have been killed. What brought it down? We see large black ants making sawdust in some of the wood. What can we do to preserve the remaining wood and use the remaining wood for our cattle gate? Thank you for you help. We are at a loss as to what to do. Carole


Strip the wood and apply borate.
