Fresh cut white ash wood has almost a 30 per cent moisture content, so you'll need to allow the wood to season for a full summer before burning. After that amount of time, the wood's moisture content should be below 20 per cent and therefore ready to burn.

Stack Smartly to Cut Seasoning Time

White ash wood's moisture content is actually lower than many other species of wood, so if you need to burn it sooner than the recommended seasoning time, it won't burn well, but it'll burn better than other species. Stack your wood in a way that encourages lots of airflow to the white ash wood; this will speed the season process.

Bottom Line

Though white ash wood has a lower moisture content than most wood, it should still be properly seasoned to create the most efficient burn. Split your white ash wood and stack it in a circle around a pole to encourage airflow. Your wood should be ready to burn in three months with this method.
