I'm trying to follow the sage advice of the stove experts here and am starting to lay in my wood for next winter. I don't have wood storage with a roof over it yet, but I've got lots of tarping. My question: is my wood going to dry faster split and stacked with a tarp over it, or split/stacked and left uncovered and exposed to the wind and rain? I'm sure this varies a bit depending on the amount of rain we receive, and I can try both and report back, but if anyone has already done this comparison I'd be really interested in what you discovered. Thanks in advance for your thoughts on this.
