    The old timers always dropped there wood in the winter, dropped not limbed. Then in spring after the fallen tree had leafed out and leaves started to dry they would buck and split. Winter cut wood is roughly @ 60% mc and if allowed to leaf out I would surmise losing another 10 to 15% that gets you about halfway there. Girdling does work good for trees you don't want to actually burn for 5 years or so, and it will be a hell of a lot drier than summer cut wood especially if your in a pinch in the middle of winter it sure comes in handy to go drop some dry trees- Done it.
