Joseph from Andalusia, Al. writes,

What is best way to treat and re-stack stored lumber?

I have stacked rough-sawn pine 1X lumber that has powderpost beetle infestation. I plan to unstack and treat with Boracare. Do both sides need treating and can the lumber be restacked wet or should I use cross-outs between them? This lumber will be used for siding in the future and have concerns about it turning dark if stacked wet.


We do recommend that you treat both sides of the lumber and that you leave it unstacked for at least 72 hours to allow it to dry for best results.
