I need some advice. I had a soft maple tree felled last year and than cut into boards. I have neglected to sticker the pile and now I have a fungus of some sort growing between the boards. I can now move the pile to its final location with stickers and need to know if I just brush the fungus/mold off will the wood be okay. Will it be okay? Do I need to wash the planks with soap and water? I also need to paint the ends as I have just learned to prevent further checking of the wood.
Thanks your your help.
