Gra,

If you’re going to store the wood in bags you’re going to have to get vented bags instead. Timber sweats in the builders bags and when you go to it in 6 months it’ll be nothing but white fungal growth.

You need the ventilation for drying, that’s why your cages work so well.
Go over to the Arbtalk forum and someone there will point you in the right direction for vented bags. It’d be a shame to lose half of you timber to mould.

Also SWMBO in ours will not let mouldy timber in the house. Dare say Pam will be the same.

Bagsupplies.com for vented bags. Or eBay.

They work a treat. Personally the last thing I'd do is slash normal bags with a knife. A knife slit won't let anywhere near the amount of air through that a full mesh side will, and weakens the bag to boot.

I've not had a problem with mould in normal bags, but the vented bags can't be beat.

I know of people who’ve had success melting holes in builders bags with a poker to allow ventilation. Obviously if weakens them though.

Not had a problem , none split yet, no need to go mad. I Am using the tall ton bags though and their a lot stronger than the builders bags.

well a few contradictory opinions chaps ?? some have no issues .... others do ?

I'd seen the vented/mesh bags and TBH didn't like the look of them, strength wise .... bet they die pretty easily!!

Bear in mind that it's .....



... here 95% of the time ..... so moisture'd not hang about long and these'd not be indoors ...

Gonna have to give it all, more thought and continue to gather opinions

cheers Mart...... all input gratefully appreciated

Just found some 'proper' looking vented bags on Ebay at 6 quid a throw

Twice what the non vented are costing, but if they do give issues, then that's false economy ..... did buy 'em for re-bagging me stone anyway

Better get some ordered by the looks of it

Anyone got any better suggestions/sources
