Question:


I live on a ranch with tons of ponderosa pine. I want to build a corral using the thinned wood. I don't want to spend the money peeling the logs. I figure that they will last at least 5 years and I can replace them as they rot. How long do you think that they will last. I don't really have the money to purchase pipe and weld them

Answer:

I would recommend peeling the logs since leaving the bark on will promote bugs to live under it and hasten the rotting. 5 years goes by fast so I would take the time to peel. A fast way to do it is get a good power washer and power wash the bark off within days of harvest. Do not stain until logs are dried to 15% moisture.
