STACKING AND STORING OF WOOD

Proper stacking of wood at the roadside prior to transport aids seasoning, reduces weight and provides protection against deterioration. Stacking should if possible be done on the higher side of the road embankment if this facilitates loading (1).

Logs and poles should be placed on supports (1a) and be easily accessible for loading.

Short wood is usually piled in stacks which also require supports (2a). The stacks should be firmly secured by one or more stakes (2b).

Small-sized material used for fuel can be bundled prior to stacking and is thus more easily handled and marketed (3).
