Can I dry logs in a Polytunnel?

It is possible to use a polytunnel for drying logs, but there are some important factors to consider.

Firstly, the polytunnel should be large enough to accommodate the volume of logs you plan to dry. The logs will need to be stacked in a way that allows air to circulate around them, so they will need enough space to be stacked in an orderly manner.

Another important factor to consider is ventilation. Drying logs inside a polytunnel will require a steady flow of air to dry the logs and to remove the moisture released during the drying process. This means that the polytunnel will need to be well-ventilated, with vents or openings that can be adjusted to control the airflow.

The location of the polytunnel is also important, it should be placed on an area that provides good sun exposure, the direct sunlight, helps to dry the logs.

It's also important to note that dried logs are flammable and should be stored safely away from any sources of heat or flame.

Overall, while it is possible to use a polytunnel for drying logs, it requires careful planning and attention to detail to ensure that the logs are dried properly and safely. It's recommended to consult with experts and inspect any laws and regulations of your area before planning to use a polytunnel for this purpose.
