End sealing is not a set & forget it proposition regardless of what you use to seal. Have to keep checking you stored wood. If leave bark on and store out side even with end sealing could end up with bugs & deterioration.

Store my sealed blanks blanks off the ground in covered wood shed, tarp covers front and tied down. Some times end up with larva, if leave bark on. Not a big problem on my blanks because leave them bigger than will actually need. Not so much if remove bark before sealing & storing.

If left out side bark on exposed to the elements rain, snow, sun, wind, & on the ground wood just going to deteriorate no matter whether end seal or not. Of course bugs going to have a field day!
