    Description

    Dry logging slash has been successfully kept dry for later burning by spraying it with asphalt and wax emulsions. The same treatments were tried on green slash. Tests made by applying SS-1 grade asphalt emulsion and a lumber wax on green slash showed that these protective coatings prevented the slash from drying satisfactorily.
