A friend wants to have some live cherry logs milled into several thicknesses (4/4, 6/4, 8/4) of lumber from family property in NY. Her two options seem to be have the logger also band mill the logs, rent a box truck, and bring the just sawn boards to Cincinnati where they would be stacked with stickers to air dry. The other option is to have the logs brought to Cincinnati and sawn here, then stacked with stickers. Assuming her logger is comfortable with both options, should she have a preference?
Is it important to have the bark edges ripped off when the logs are milled?
Should the just sawn boards be sprayed with a borate or other insecticide before stacking?
