What a Shame...

What a crying shame, the old apple tree in the back yard appears to have expired. Whatever will I do with all that dead dry apple wood.....

It could be quite dangerous. You should dry it and dispose of it a little at a time, perhaps in a controlled-heat environment, in the presence of a buffer... like a pork roast.
Good luck and don't forget to protect yourself with copious amounts of beer and an apron with a potentially offensive expression on the front. Don't dismay, in no time you'll be rid of that pesky tree.

Dead apple is not safe for BBQ'in. I will do you a solid and get rid of it for you. You can ship it to me and I will be more than happy to dispose of if for you, free of charge.

I wonder if my frequent "pruning" the last few years had anything to do with the poor things demise?

Make sure it's free of some funky mold though.
