Why wet storage?
Constant, proper sprinkling of water is considered one of the most effective methods of preserving wood without the loss of quality. The maximum storage period depends on the type of wood. For softwood, it is up to 5 years.
With proper sprinkling, the pores of the logs fill up and oxygen cannot enter anymore. Bark beetles and other insects or fungi no longer have a chance of damaging the wood.
Wet storage also protects the wood from drying out and prevents the damage associated with it.
