Why does wood that I cut down have to dry out before I can burn it?

    Wet wood does not burn completely and can release pollutants into the air. The biggest concern is particulate pollution which can cause lung problems.

    Wood that hasn’t been truly seasoned–left out for about a year–is too wet to burn efficiently. The water and sap in “green” or unseasoned wood take time to slowly evaporate out, leaving a lighter, faster burning fuel. Hardwoods such as oak take longer to season, but also burn longer in the fire.
