    Jammin this weekend to get things CSS. Not bad for two days work considering I don't have a splitter. Just me, my Stihl and my Fiskers.... Stack in the foreground should be around 1.5 cords once I'm done. Stack in the background was put up last summer about 1 cord total. Mostly Maple and Ash.

    What's the dry time on Ash ?

    Thanks, Joe

    Good work and it looks good. Ash normally needs a year but if you have more time that is good too. It starts out with low moisture (but not low enough for burning right away) and once split it dries well in a reasonable time.

    Like Dennis said, a full years is good, longer is better.
