So I am beginning to stack the wood I have been working on over the last week or so. I decided that I would forego the snow fence end post and try to stack the ends in the opposing direction method that I see in alot of pics here. The question is, do you need to tie in the end stack to the main pile in order to get the structural support to thwart the stack's sideways pressure? I just can't see how free floating these end stacks will stop the pile from settling and pushing them away. My thought is to add some opposing direction logs into the regularly stacked area to tie them together.
