Split your wood when green

NZ Lifestyle Block - - The Good Life -

Dry wood is harder to split and some woods, like elm, are nearly im­pos­si­ble to split when dry. Also, if it starts to rot, wood will never dry out the same.

Split and stack so it dries as fast as pos­si­ble, even if that has to be done be­side the stump at the time – you can al­ways wait for sum­mer to get ve­hi­cle ac­cess to it, and then stack it in the fire­wood shed.
