OK, call me a rookie, but I will need more wood than I got at first for my new(first year with) wood stove. The first 1.5 cords the guy dropped off in early fall was well seasoned, but the second 1.5 cords was not. The wood was cut almost a year ago but not split until a week or so ago. My question is, if I put the less seasoned stuff in my un-heated garage with a fan moving the air around will it help? The wood is about 50% oak, 20% locust and the balance is a mix of hardwoods. The wood guy said the locust is ready to burn right away and the other should be fine in a couple weeks. Am I screwed? Do I find better wood from a different source that is truly seasoned and let this second load wait to next year? And just to mention, the guy charged only $175 per 1.5 cords (same price for each load).
