Yes, the lumber will be moved (has already been moved) to a barn and restacked/stickered.  The 2832 bf job that I finished today will be hauled about 30 miles and restacked/stickered in the customer's barn.

It is very normal for me to saw where the logs are and the lumber rough stacked.  It is then moved from the woods to the customer's home, barn, or whatever and restacked.

not a very good job of piling and stickering!  you should try to educate your customers on the finer points of stickering.i am very very anal about caring for green lumber. :)
please dont say they are going to be moving the pile and redoing it?
 side note: lynn i'm not pointing the blame your direction! :) unless you want it :D

I'm a bit puzzled where and why-for this comment comes from.   ::) ::)

Whose piling job is being downgraded here?

i'm going to say the picture that shows a stickered pile :(
 why do people go thru thr extra work of stickering a pile just to relocate it.? why not pile it on a trailer and save some handling. but i am a little bit on the lazy side :)
the experts think i do things wrong
 over 18 million b.f. processed and 7341 happy customers i disagree

Uhm magicman lives in the south and unfortunately for me just like here its in the 90 and humid, Smarter to do a quick sticker job than not to do one at all with pine, unless of coarse you like blue, green and black on your lumber.

i guess i look at things from a cost standpoint.the least amount of labor to produce lumber.
 handling lumber mulitiple times is a big labor waster ;) or anything for that matter.

ROL,  I agree with you in a perfect world, but on my last two jobs above, it was only me and the customer.  The customer has one trailer, neither of which would even come close to hauling the lumber sawed.  In both cases, it was all that the customer could do to keep the lumber pulled as I sawed.  On those jobs it was 2552 and 2832 bf of lumber in less than two days sawing. 

A question was asked in another thread last week about dead stacking Pine on a trailer.  Even a week of dead stacking Pine would/could cause mildew to start growing and bad things happening.  That same week with the lumber loosely stacked/stickered will allow the lumber to begin drying and without any ill effects. 

I do not charge for sawing stickers, so in both cases, the customer has plenty of stickers.  He can now spend the next week hauling the lumber to his barn and properly caring for it while I am off sawing for someone else.   :)

I have a spot with great airflow and a storm came in and blew down a tarp onto the end of my pine boards.  In less then 36 hours I had some mold and mildew.
