    His stacks are actually compressed. Shrinkage relieves some of the pressure.

    Other than being too close to the house I'll admit to the stereo type.... No there are not any shrinkage issues if you use the wood to stabilize the stack. We have been through this so many times it makes me sick!!! :lol:
