ABSTRACT

Coffee Break Training: Storage Practices: Log Storage Areas   [open pdf - 449KB]

"When felled logs come out of the forest and are brought to the sawmill, they often are stored in piles for a period of time before being cut into lumber. These large log piles are known in the wood products industry as 'cold decks.' The size of cold decks is limited by the fire codes to provide firefighting access and minimize the total amount of combustible materials that might be in one pile."
