So I found a guy not to far from me that runs a saw mill and is giving away all of his scraps mostly its the outer skin of the tree. He says its all cut to stove length and just needs to be split. Right now all he has is pine which is fine my question is how long will pine last split and stacked. Ive seen pine stacked up before and after a year its getting rotten I would like to get a couple cords from him but worry about it getting rotten before its used. This would all be for next year and the next.
