Greetings everyone, I have been a lurker on the forum for about two months and decided I have to join in. I began my addiction about a year ago when I aquired 40 acres of land that is chock full of premium hardwood. In the past year I have gathered about 15 cord of wood and cannot stop (my wife calls me woody.) Question: Standing dead black birch with that weird fungus. Moisture is at about 22-24%. It is outside but in a shady area. Maybe 2-3 hour of sun max. Will it be ready by December? Since this is my first year and I am not three years ahead I am getting desperate.
