Value of Oak That is Dying of Sudden Oak Death

I have a huge Calif Oak (couple hundred years old) which has Sudden Oak Death and must be removed in the near future.

Can the timber be sold for the cost of removal or does the diseased timber have any value?

Hi Wanda:

I simply cannot answer that question because I have no idea what condition this tree is in. Therefore, please contact your local Extension Office in California to better assist you with this question that requires an on-site assessment.
