If you are ordering wood now it most likely won't be ready to burn in the fall unless it's soft wood or you find the extremely rare guy who actually sells seasoned wood. You should be buying a minimum of a year ahead of time usually 2 years.When do you usually order your firewood, do you get it in the spring, so you can have it dry and ready for the winter? Or do you order your firewood in fall, or winter so you can burn it ?
Before I became educated in this, I would order late fall and burn whatever I got in the fireplace. Wife would wonder why large splits of oak were just sizzling and not producing flames well.When do you usually order your firewood, do you get it in the spring, so you can have it dry and ready for the winter?

“Seasoned” wood is NEVER dry. I don’t care who is selling it. Most people like to be 3 years ahead, that way anything green they get has at least that long to dry out properly
Do you have a reputable firewood seller like @JRHAWK9 with already seasoned wood?
You are an exception and a credit to the trade. Most sellers start counting the "seasoning time" from when the tree was felled. It doesn't really start to season until split and stacked.I beg to differ. I sell properly dried "seasoned" wood. The stuff I sold this winter was c/s/s in 2016.
