Hey all, I’ve got a few cord of hardwood stacked outside for seasoning. It’s mostly seasoned (1-2 years). I plan on burning some of it this winter, starting probably in late October. I have always kept the top of the stack covered with a tarp. I was standing out there the other day with the hot sun absolutely beating down on the stack and thought to myself “why am I keeping this wood in the shade?” So I took the tarps off to let the sun (and more air) get to it. I drive around here and see big piles of wood in peoples yards with no covering all the time. Getting rained on and everything. So my question is, better to keep the tarps on all the time? Or leave them off in the summer to let the sun get to it, and if it gets some rain it should dry out pretty quick once the suns out. What do you all think? Thanks!
