Most of the wood in my shed has aged about 2 years so I knew it was fairly dry. An ash split was around 17% and a maple split was around 14%. No idea how accurate my meter is but I knew from the sound of them that they were dry. Now what surprised me was a cherry split that I tested. It has about an extra year seasoning on it vs the other 2 but it came in at 9%! I didn't think we could get that low a figure in this area with the humidity most of the year. It will be interesting to see what the older wood will come in at mid summer as I expect to still have plenty of 3+ yr wood remaining in the shed after this heating season is done. Yes, the wood measured were fresh splits.
