I have heard that you must "cure" wood before it is good for the fireplace.
I have two nice-sized pine trees that Mother Nature toppled in my backyard Thur-Fri, which I subsequently reduced to a stack of 12-16" logs.
What do I have to do with regard to curing?
Or can I immediately use these logs in the fireplace.
I do love a crackling pine log on a chilly fall evening
Thanks in advance for any guidance.
