Preparing Your Log(s) for Pick Up

All logs must be free of limbs, trimmed to length and stacked where they can be easily accessed by a truck and trailer. If you are unable to prepare your logs for transportation yourself, we are able to provide this service for an additional hourly fee.

Air-Drying Your Lumber

Green lumber must be properly stacked and allowed to dry before use in most woodworking projects. The drying time required varies with wood type, thickness, air flow, relative humidity and temperature. This process can take anywhere from 3 to 12 months.

Stacking stickers, small flat pieces of dry wood, must be used in order to facilitate proper air flow and to help keep boards straight and flat while drying. Stacking stickers should be placed every 12 in. to 18 in. between every row of lumber in your stack.

We sell stacking stickers here as a convenience to our log milling customers, however you can easily make you own from any dry scrap wood.

Calculating Board Feet (Bd. Ft.)

1 Bd. Ft. = 12 in. x 12 in. x 1 in., or the equivalent.
