Seasoned logs definition:
These are logs that have been left out to dry for at least 1 season. This’s the natural and traditional way to dry out logs. Seasoned logs are time and again stored undercover with good exposure to air to aid the conventional drying out procedure. Logs that were dried out during hotter time of year are the best as there’s more chance of moisture being dried out. Softwood takes a smaller amount of time than Hardwood to dry out. Most hardwood like Oak can really take more than a few seasons to reach the low moisture levels mandatory for a Wood Burning Stove.
