Hello all, as it stands now I have approximately 10 cords of wood spilt and stacked with more on the way, mostly oak so a lot of it will be sitting for 2-3 years if not more depending on how mild our winters are. With that In mind I’m trying to figure out if I should cover the wood, there’s a lot of debate out there, some say don’t cover others say cover and other say only cover the wood that you’ll be burning that season. I store about half a cord in my basement at a time, I typically keep a close eye on the weather and when I see rain or snow in the forecast I bring more in so I’m always dealing with dry wood. My biggest concern is some of this wood won’t be burned for 3 years maybe more should I be worried about rot if I don’t cover it? Maybe this post would be better suited for the wood shed forum but everyone here is burning wood so what’s the harm? I’ll be Interested in the feed back.
