Wood, no matter how it is produced, contains levels of moisture. With kiln dried wood the moisture content can be as low as 8%, or up to as high as 20%, depending on the initial degree of drying and how much it has been exposed to damp since it was kiln dried. Green wood, i.e. that which has been recently cut and hasn’t been seasoned or kiln dried, such as wood from the garden or obtained from a landscape gardener, can easily have a moisture content of in excess of 30% and in some exceptional cases more than double the weight of the wood alone can be water. Seasoned wood is that which has been allowed to dry out naturally under shelter. As a guideline, it takes a about year for each inch thickness of wood for it to season properly. In Britain, where we have an oceanic climate, the humidity of the air is rarely low enough to season wood naturally to a moisture content of less than about 16%, and usually it is quite a bit more than this. The higher the moisture level, the more of the heat energy of the fire is wasted on burning off … Continue reading
