I have 2 huge red oak logs that have been sitting in my yard for about 3 years, uncovered. My intent was to eventually get them lumbered and stack so i can used the wood for years to come. The logs are 16’ long, between 36” to 30” diameter.
A coworker mentioned that before i invest in getting it sawmilled, i should find out about some bacteria in red oak that develop when a log is sitting in the sun for a summer…i never heard of that before, so here is my checkup before i decide to turn this into lumber or get some nice board ou of it… He said that after the red oak get cut, the bacteria develop tiny little crask all over the board…..
I search online and could not find anything on this….
Can anyone advise on that ? Thanks in advance,
