3 acres of red oaks
« on: March 24, 2016, 10:35:39 PM »
A guy is clearing 3 acres of oaks and is giving away all the logs. My question is, do I seal the logs and let them sit or cut into large cants and keep them off the ground I don't have a place to store the wood out of the weather

Thanks


Buck

Seal the ends and store them off the ground. I wouldn't saw into cants due to checking. Oak loves to do that when stored out in the weather.

Buck,

   My thoughts on that are that it is like chicken soup - it can't hurt and it might help. I got my first 5 gallon of anchorseal a few weeks back and been sealing everything on site. If the wife doesn't calm down I think I may slap a coat on her. Good luck.

Oaks blow down due to shallow roots / oaks with taproot
