crust / storage racks
Explanation:
Quand on parle de la croûte terrestre ou de l'écorce terrestre, cela se traduit par: earth's crust, donc je pense qu'il est possible d'utiliser le mot crust pour le bois également.

Autrement croûte se dit également: bark

Explanation:
"The procedure uses wood in the form of planks or posts that are placed on storage racks. The wood is then shredded and pre-dried"

Gary you've probably got a better translation but having a go helped me get a practical image in my mind.

slab


Explanation:
According to GDT, croûte (= dosse) = slab, which is the first or last plank sawn from a log, i.e. with one flat sawn surface and the other surface from the outside of the log, with or without bark.
