Wood & Its Moisture Level

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.
