Green wood

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
First want to thank everyone for all their help with us beginners,without you guys,this would be just another ok hobby( with you its a great and tasty obsession )
a friend is trimming his apple trees and offered me the trimmings( 3-4" thick branches).Any tips on using these or do they have to be dried first,and for how long.
Any help or advice ??

In my opinion it should be dried first as to how long that will take there are just to many variables to say. If it were me I would split and stack it and put something over it to keep the rain off of it.

What Piney said , unless you don't get much rain. Then just let in the sun and dry out. Maybe 2 months in the open.


Good luck!
