I'm not sure what community to post this under so please let me know if this should be in a different place.
I am about to cut down a lot of trees (15-20) on my property and will be using the wood for burning in a wood stove. However, I don't have the time to immediately cut everything and split the wood. I was thinking about just cutting the trees into 6 foot logs and stacking those until I can get to them at a later time. Some of them may sit for a couple of years before they eventually get cut and split. Is there anything bad about letting the 6 ft logs sit outside that long before splitting them for firewood? I feel this method is the most practical for my situation where I'm limited by time and I have a lot of trees to process.
The logs would be stored outside and stacked to allow airflow (off the ground too). Most of the trees are hardwoods.
