Description: The number of woody species succumbing to Sudden Oak Death (SOD) infections and the number of counties where the pathogen has been reported continue to increase. One result is that the hazards related to falling trees and high levels of fuel hazard conditions are also increasing dramatically. The removal of infected, dead and dying trees creates numerous handling and disposal problems. One possible solution is to develop markets for wood products made from SOD infected material that would help defer some of the cost of removing the hazards and reduce the amount going into landfill. The results of a recent project that focused on tanoak (Lithocarpus densiflorus) utilization, one of the SOD susceptible species, provide valuable insight into the potential for utilizing SOD infected material.
