Description: Prior to World War II, southern pine logs were commonly protected against stain and decay by storing them in ponds. While in the water, only the exposed portion of each log-that part floating above the surface suffered fungal infection. Safe storage time in the pond could be extended by periodically revolving each log to hold its light side immersed. The difficulty in keeping logs wet throughout, and the expenses of pond maintenance, recovery of sunken logs, and withdrawal of logs from storage caused discontinuance of this method of storage.
