WHAT IS THE FASTEST WAY TO SEASON FIREWOOD?

Should you be planning to season your own firewood, unless you are doing large amounts at a time, you will likely want your seasoned wood as soon as possible in time for the heating season. Here are a number of fairly simple ways in which the process can be sped up:

Seek out a location close to your home. When storing firewood, it’s important to keep convenience in mind. Firewood can be heavy to carry from outside into your home, and this can be especially stressful during the colder months. Seek out an appropriate space away from the home to avoid infestations from wood boring insects, but nearby enough for convenience.

See if there’s room in an outdoor non-wooden storage shed. If you have an outdoor storage shed, this is a great place to store firewood. Inside a shed, firewood will be protected from things like rain.

Stack firewood effectively. When stacking firewood, make sure to do so effectively. Stacking your firewood incorrectly can cause it to rot quicker. You should always stack your firewood rather than throw it in a pile. This will promote air circulation and keep firewood from drying out.

Do not put a tarp over firewood before it’s dry. Wet firewood needs to dry out before it can be stored safely. Wet wood needs to be exposed to open air to dry out. If you’ve just collected firewood, refrain from putting a tarp over it.

If it’s going to rain, it’s appropriate to cover wet firewood with a tarp. Just make sure to leave the sides of the firewood pile uncovered.
