So yesterday, while I was standing outside thinking of where my next stack of wood will be, my neighbor, a long time wood burner came over to admire my work. He, of course, has twice the amount of wood Ive got, and has a lot of knowledge on the subject. He questioned why I put tarps over my seasoning wood. I said that I figured it would season better if rain and snow didnt hit the wood directly. Then he showed me all his wood that was in the process of seasoning and how it wasn't covered. He thought it helped it to season better if it was left uncovered. My neighbor explained to me that sometime in October, he moves all his seasoned wood to a covered area, or just throws a tarp over it. So, is this pretty much the consensus for wood that is being seasoned?
