When we built our home 3 1/2 years ago I had to fell perhaps 50-75
trees some of which where large enough to mill.
A local sawyer with a portable bandsaw mill did the job and I ended up
with about 2500 board feet of lumber. Most of it is red oak, some 5/4
and some 6/4. Most of the boards are 12 - 14" in width though some are
The piles were well built, stickered carefully, and covered.
Recently, I have been going through the piles sorting for size and
quality to put things into some useful order.
Most of the wood is in excellent shape...
After more than three years, I consider the wood fully seasoned.
Here's my question:
When I re-build the piles, is there any benefit to stickering them? If
so, what would be the benefit?
Sincere thanks for any information on this,
