new wood - treat it or leave it?

Posted by glassy_gold on June 24th, 2002 04:39 PM

We just had a cottage built from pine which was newly harvested from local trees. It is still 'alive' in that it is moist. The carpenter told me I had to wait one year before staining or painting in order to allow the wood to dry. I am concerned that by that time the local insects will have made inroads. Is there any treatment I can use now to protect the wood?
