    I just cut down a standind dead elm. Top branches were long stripped of their bark. They are <15% moisture content. I am surprised. Wish I had more.

    congrats on the find, sorry it wasn't a bigger haul, though.

    Very common. We usually wait until all bark has stripped before cutting them. Some is ready to burn and some not. Regardless, it just goes into the pile and won't get burned for a few years. It keeps rather nicely.

    The 6" plus branches are 35%. I will split them use for next year.
