    The ends of the logs are probably seasoned just right!

    That seems like it might be a reasonable deal, though.

    Probably just the last inch or two. If you cut your wood to 2 inches long, you will have nicely seasoned wood. Hard to stack though.

    Logs could have been off the ground in the air for 10 years. They could've been cut standing dead.

    I like to think the best of people, personally.

    Since the definition of 'seasoned wood' is not well defined, and most burners (or at least the ones in this forum) think seasoned should be below a certain moisture content, I would find it hard to think that someone has 100 cords of standing dead or off the ground for 10 years that is still in log length.

    Also, it seems to me that a lot of the people selling wood think seasoning starts when the tree is cut, but the general consensus is that it doesn't start to season until it is cut, split, and stacked.

    It is all in how you interpret a poorly defined term. (seasoned).
