I tried that 40 years ago. It seemed like a good idea. The bottom third of the pileWhat is the purpose of stacking? Can I just make a big pile right beside my splitter until it’s used?
If it doesnt get drier it prevents it from getting wet and moldy.Ok I understand now. I have to stack. Since I unexpectedly ended up burning wood in a blaze king ultra this year I don’t have any wood so I been cutting dead standing ash. It’s working and I guess dry enough yo get by. Should i stack it? It’s cold winter here in Indiana so does any drying take place in winter? Rarely have sun
I left a couple cords of ash in a stack for a while since I was too busy to get to it. The top one or two layers dried out nicely, the bottom layer was filthy and it was stacked on 8 inches of stone.I have tried it with slabwood since it stacks with few air spaces. Only the outside pieces dried well.
Agreed, my wood is stacked under a metal prefab carport on crushed stone. The layer that's on the ground gets pulled and set on top of the next stack for next years wood, because it absorbs moisture from the ground/stone. I could use pallets but they rot and attract vermin.I think the most important part is keeping it off the ground.
