I kind of agree with Nomad 62. He said “Stickering is only beneficial in reducing sticker stain and mold growth while the wood is drying” If you have ever dead stacked wet boards they will mold and fuse together causing “stain” for the entire boards in very little time. Stickers let the air through reducing what might be better called “contact stain”. I have only run a few sawmills for a few decades and 4 kilns – dehumdification, conventional heat, solar, and hybrid so it is just an observation. I too sticker lumber until kilned dried and then I dead stack in environmentally controlled racks. My dead stacked lumber rarely creaps over 10% moisture content.
