Logs are typically dried in the sawmill yard for several months before they are sawed up.

- ArtMann

typically, large scale sawmills will have sprinklers on the log piles to keep them wet until milling. dry logs dont mill as easy as wet logs. smaller mill operations like to mill fresh or wet wood,too.
keeping logs wet also keeps bugs from hatching.
