By preparing wood several months in advance you'll be sure to have proper fuel for next winter. If you have wood left over that is already seasoned, stage it so that you're sure to use that wood first. This will buy even more time for your new wood to season and prevent older wood from rotting and becoming useless. I'd like to thank woodheat.org for the images and much of the above information.
