    I got roughly 3 cords stacked in these "sheds" mix of Doug fir, pine, white birch, hemlock, and a little bit of left over oak from a score 4 years ago. each shed is stacked 3 rows deep. Took various splits from the front and back of each unit, re-split and checked with my H/F moisture meter lowest readings I got was 14% highest was 18%, did not check anything from middle rows, but hoping they are fine

    Just to be sure my meter was reading right i checked some of these piled splits and rounds and they were anywhere from high 20% to 35%

    suppose to be a colder than normal winter here this year , so I guess I am ready

    Looks like you are set. How long since they were split?
