Last year I was sitting pretty - 3+ years ahead on hardwood. Then I moved. Since inter-state wood moving is a no-no around here, I'm starting from zero. I'm hoping to do some work in the next month to put up some wood that will be good in about 9 months. So far, I poached some of the wood that the power line crews left behind. Some very green soft maple and white birch that I will cut, split, and stack on skids in a sunny/windy area. But this a small amount of wood. My wood lot has plenty of standing dead trees that still have solid wood cores. If I put this stuff up now, will it dry faster than green wood?
