Just what the title asks. Earlier today a tree on our premises split in two in heavy winds. The tree is of a variety referenced 'सागवन' in the vernacular, and Central Provinces Teak else-wise - that it topped itself is extremely surprising, and uncommon!
After trimming the foliage, and off-shoots I hope to season it. After taking a quick gander at the various notes on seasoning posted online, here's what I find myself wondering
- Is wood seasoned with, or without the bark?
- Should I simply leave the log lying on the ground? It is a fairly hard kind, and the fallen length (approx. 50 ft) far too heavy to lift.
- Need I take any precautions against warp/split?
p.s. I'm told grand-dad seasoned wood letting it lie up-to 10 years thus!
