    I cut 10 cords of poplar white aspen firewood last winter I stuck a moisture meter in the smaller 3 in quarters were 15 percent and the big ones were between 15 and 20 percent 5 or more 1nch quarters do you think it will be ready to burn I checked it three weeks ago and it was reading this there is still two more months to dry I think it will be ready dont you guys This is for my Opel 3 woodburning fireplace.

    Sounds like its ready, one sure way to check is split open one of the fat ones and check it where its freshly split

    All I know is, .........they say 20% or less is good! (Moisture reading).

    As long as you are checking it properly, but even without checking, popple usually dries pretty fast, even if it isn't split.
