My neighbour cut down a birch tree that was in the way of an electrical line. It was in a hill and right before winter, so when the day after snow began to fall, they didn’t clean the branches up. About 5 weeks ago they cleaned the hill up from branches, so I came and scooped some of the logs – about 50cm wide in diameter by 50cm tall.
It had barely cracked in the endgrain, so I thought it was worth saving.
I stored it in my garage. About a week after fungus started developing. I asked a carpenter and he told me it was not a problem.
Today I saw lice-like creatures crawling on top of it. I could easily spot 10-20 of them. What should I do? Get rid of the logs ASAP so they don’t spread to my other already dried lumber? Store it outside? Store it in a plastic bag?
