Wood for the winter has to be taken care of the preceding spring, at the latest. And though I did chop down trees and limb them this March, I've been horribly late in bucking and splitting. I fell in love, the wood could wait. I've propped the felled trees up so they haven't become soggy, but they haven't dried as much as they should have either.
There's one safety valve though, trees in the vicintiy that have fallen down on their own, and dried out over a couple of seasons. So I've dragged them home and now at least have something.
