A guy I work with wants a bunch of black locust cut. He burns wood, but he wont burn it because he says he is allergic to the smoke? doesn't bother me. anyways, if I cut these trees and and block and split them up right away, do you think they will be dry enough to burn this time NEXT year - Jan 2010? I know people say 2 years for the really hard wood, but I don't really have room to store wood for 2 years. Thanks!
