It’s funny the difference in where I’m from, we consider seasoned as wood that has sat a season in the weather vs green that hasn’t. You can see adds for seasoned and dry wood in ads for sale. I know folks that buy green wood and let it set out before they process. I also know folks that don’t have any issues processing green wood right away with no issues after 1 year but it will look different than seasoned wood.
