Question:


I'm conidering peeling my logs for a cabin with a pressure washer to save time over using a draw knife. Is this a good idea? How soon after cutting down the trees should you peel the bark? Will a pressure washer take off both the outer and inner bark leaving a white log?

Thanks,

Jim

Answer:

I know of a company that does peel there logs with a pressure washer. It is a very high pressure, not just a home depot type. They take both outer and inner bark off doing this. They do it as soon as the treearecut down.If you wait too long the bark will be to hard to remove.
