Our log home was built in 1986 of square white pine logs.They were never treated and have greyed over the years. We have just added an addition which looks the same except the new logs are of course the whitish in colour. Two questions…is it Ok to never treat the logs and is there any sense in trying to remove the grey from the original logs and then let it all age more or less equally…if so, what is the best way to remove the grey??

You could media blast the old ones, but they would still look a little darker and the surface texture would be different. The new will probably start matching the old in a couple of years. If left unstained you should apply a good borate solution every 6 or 7 years.
