How important is sunlight for drying wood? I am trying to figure out a place to locate my wood pile and I have a lot of trees that are going to be giving unwanted shade. This time of year it gets sun, but not when the leaves fill out. I have the wood on pallets, 2 rows per pallet, with about 6-10" of breathing room between the rows. Do you think I will be ok if I get mostly shade in the summer?
