I split some dead ash yesterday. This was EAB dead that a local tree service had in their "landfill" pile. Great stuff- straight and about 32-36" long. I cut it all to 16-18" logs and split it. Really easy to split. The wood was very dry for freshly Split wood. I checked moisture content on some fresh splits and found about 23% MC. I am going to take 1 row of my next year's shed-full and replace it with this wood. It will sit all summer, covered and exposed to south sun and wind. It will be the last wood I burn next heating season. Based on past experience with ash and what I have heard folks here say, I'm guessing this will be be dry by April/may of 2014. Any input?
