Welcome to the Forestry Forum, Dave!

Enjoyed your video of sawing the Birch in the back yard!

When covering fresh sawn lumber, it's not a good idea to seal the stack in with a close fitting tarp, much better to cover with roofing metal and leave the sides of the stack open!

The video would likely get better/more reviews if you reposted it in the Sawmills and Milling section!

Overall, Nice!   ;)
