    I cut down a standing dead about 7 months ago, so it has been laying all this time. I split it and stacked it yesterday... No bark on this either and very hard.....


    Can I burn this wood now?????

    Try knocking some splits together? How does it sound.
    Got a moisture meter? Use it.
    Test burn some splits. Steam, hiss, bubble, etc.

    If no strikes use it. If three strikes see below.

    I would split and dry it for 4+ months. Find other seasoned wood elsewhere.

    that's going to be hard to do, finding other truly seasoned wood this time of year.
