Counter intuative i though wet wood would go mouldy faster.....

They pull out " swamp logs " that have been buried in wet mud for years . They are well preserved and worth a lot of money usually . ( dependent on species ) .

Thats completey underwater though think preserved as  no oxygen

 

Firwood that gets left out & rained on goes bad....esp some like birch &   spruce

 

Imagine large stacks of thoose speices in wood yards...

Pine logs will deteriorate within one year if left lying but spray water storage meant they were still millable 4 years later after a major windblow.

Guessing the constant wetting prevents the various beetles laying their eggs.

I am always astounded at the speed with which they "move in" and the damage the larvae do, so fast!

To my firewood stock, so no odds, but still astounding.

It keeps out the stain fungus too and strangely makes the milling better.

I seem to remember that was after a massive winter storm tore through Scandinavia. The OP is just spamming us with click-bait as usual 🖕🏻

There’s one in st nazaire by the big bridge over the Loire.
You will be able to see it on google earth if it’s still there.
It’s about several hundred times bigger than the one in the video.
Looks like it’s closed downemoji22.pngemoji22.pngemoji22.png
