Just wondering if we can put sawdust (from a tree we just cut down) in our compost bin even though we saw termites in the wood?

This article should help you with that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/composting/ingredients/using-sawdust-in-your-compost-pile.htm If the termites no longer have anything to feed on, they will likely die or move elsewhere. The heat from the compost pile may also kill them, so this shouldn't be a problem. If they do survive, it is unlikely they would cause any damage to your plants, as they typically only target unhealthy trees.
