A couple of posts back I posted a photo of a hemlock that had fallen in a storm. I have it all milled up and stacked now and I came out with a great pile of lumber. A variety eight foot boards ranging from 1×1’s right up to 2×10’s. The wood will stay under this shelter and air dry. The general rule is one year for every inch of thickness. This lumber will be used to build an unheated shed so it isn’t as important to be dried completely.
