Hello everyone I'm new to the forum and have not burned wood for the last 15 years. My wife and I moved to Arkansas and are burning for our primary heat. We are using a Hearthstone Mansfield and so far so good. The question I have is regarding cut and split red and white oak. I know most people recommend 2+ years seasoning. What I am wondering is this. The oak I have has come from dead standing trees currently when checked with a General pin type moisture meter is is checking at about 26%. I'm assuming seasoning time is not important and the only thing that matters is moisture content. How long do you estimate it will take to hit the magic 20% number? It is split and stacked in the sun and wind. Thanks everyone.
