Some people storing wood outside put a tarp over it and call it a day. Depends on how permanent you want it to be. ...

Nope, depends on how quickly you want mold, mildew and other fungus growths to form and ruin your lumber. The tarp traps rising moisture from the ground creates and a greenhouse environment encouraging the growth of undesirable funguses (fungi?).
