storing seasoned firewood in the city

by Tim

I live in the city and have few options for storing wood other than on a rack next to my garage. If I've purchased firewood that has been dried, and I need to store the majority of it outside, am I better off with a rack uncovered where it can be exposed to rain, or covered with a tarp where it won't get air circulation?


If you are buying firewood that is completely seasoned (such as kiln dried firewood), I recommend keeping it covered. If you are not sure if the firewood is completely seasoned, it's best to cover the firewood but only the top of the rack leaving the side exposed to air and sunlight.

Hope this helps!
