I had a huge Poplar tree cut down last month. I've got it all stacked up off the ground to dry out. I'd like to spilt it as soon as possible, but so far it's way too wet. How long does it generally take until it can be split without feeling like I'm splitting glue? Also, I'm planning on renting a log splitter for the huge trunk sections. What's the fattest piece those splitters can take? This trunk is easily 2' across.
