Logs that have turned a black color or a dingy gray have lost their protective finish, which exposes the logs to degrading ultraviolet light and moisture.

Any splashing from the heavy rain or constant soaking from last winter’s melting snow may make these particular areas especially susceptible to wood damage, and rot.
