I don t know how long the logs have been cut But I think awhile,

The article I am linking to has 2 pieces of info.

One that Tar coating for driveways is a good alternative to Anchorseal.

But the most important part is. End-coat all logs as soon as possible after the tree is felled to prevent rapid drying of log ends.

That is the gem, because a lot of sawyers aren’t seeing the downed trees for sometimes months, before they are onsite, and milling, and when they are saying ASAP, they mean that day. A tree can lose a significance amount of moisture in the first 24 hours. Those logs lose it from the ends first. Sealing a tree weeks to months later may be good for wood identification at a later date, but you aren’t likely to stop much checking.
