Water storage of timber: experience in Britain

Research Report (incl. Bulletins and Technical Papers)
Joan F Webber
1996
The gale of October 1987 blew down 4 million cubic metres of timber in the south of England, about one-third of which was pine. Construction and management of a wet store is described. Monitoring of log condition and water effluent quality was undertaken. Incidence of bluestain was restricted to a low level. Porosity of timber increased significantly during water shortage. The softwood strength reduced slightly but did not reduce the yield of construction grade timber.
