How long can you keep rounds on the ground before it gets punky(rotten).

It will depend on the type of wood and the moisture in the ground but I would say it can happen faster than you would think. I'd get it off the ground on some pallets, ASAP.
It definetely depends on they type of wood. If its cut side down it will wick up some moisture. For the extremes, black locust could care less, pine will start to rot in a few months in wet weather.
General rule is 2-4 years. Sometimes less, sometimes more. As stated, it depends upon what wood it is and how much moisture there is. Also depends if it is in sun or not.
