I was organizing the wood yard to make room for more and I tested some splits. All this wood is stacked in double rows uncovered last summer open to wind but partially shaded. Black locust I CSS in fall 11 is still 27-30% !! So much for fast drying. I will probably need to burn some this winter so I restacked it all in single rows with top cover. While at it I also restacked all the ash I CSS in summer and fall 12. I don't even need to check this stuff its already so light it feels ready to go So maybe skip the BL another season and break into the ash next winter... Either way, From now on I'm going all single rows for 2 year seasoning. I just don't have space to go 3 years.
