Do you mean 'wet' like pressure treated lumber wet?
Or 'wet' like it just rained a bunch and the timbers are wet?

The timbers are wet from being out in the rain.

if you are using a chain saw- no problem when wet.

You can use a circular saw when they are wet, but the saw will probably bog down and/or bind in the cut.
