I cut down a large ash tree two years ago. Today I harvested some more wood from the 24" trunk. It has been laying on the ground in northern NJ. The outside is punky although the inside looks great. Should I let it dry or should it be good to burn right now. I know ash can be used immediately after cutting it down, however I don't know if it maybe picked up some moisture while on the ground? I would rather not stack it twice if possible!
