I am posting this as an illustration of real world results. I wont argue that the 3 year oak rule and that some of you will never burn oak before 3 years, but. I have some oak that I got from a logger that was cut on a job about this time last year, I cut it and split it over a few weeks. IT was cut green and was soaking wet when I split it. The tree I took a sample piece from was about 40+ inches in diameter. I pulled one split off the top( if I remember I will pull off more and resplit tomorrow) and resplit it. Took moisture readings and they were either 23 or 24% in about 4 different places about equal. This stuff should be ready this burning season after our summer. It has about 1 year right now and I have a good 6 months before I would even think about using it, I think its easily in range to loose another 5% by next winter??? Will let you know the results of more splits when I do them. This was I think from a red oak, I had red and white but just did not pay close attention when I picked the piece and from where.
