Can i use BoraCare to treat fungus and termite infested pepper tree trunks?

We have been cutting down our dead trees infested with fungus and termites. we were told we need to throw them all out but I wanted to keep them to make steps and foot paths around our property. can i treat them with any of your product and do we have to strip the bark off the trunks?


BoraCare will kill any living plants and trees, so you could only use it if they are already dead or you don't mind if they are dead.  You would have to strip the bark and let the wood dry as much as possible before treating with Bora-Care.  The Bora-Care will kill any insects in the wood and neutralize fungus.  You would want to seal the wood after treating with a water sealant if they were going to be outside and exposed to rain for a long time.
