How to Season Firewood?

Answer

To season firewood, chop down the woods in sizeable pieces that can fit into the storage room. Arrange the wood in layers with each layer perpendicular to each other with enough spacing between the wood pieces. The wood should be stored high above the ground. The storage room should have enough aeration for the wood to lose the moisture. The top should be covered and the barks can act as the best cover.
