Just wondering if anyone has held onto wood for a given time frame (in years). A buddy of mine (who is a forester) mentioned that its no good after a year even if its covered. I was thinking WTF? I figured it would store years on end without rain and off the ground. Am I missing something?

We have a wood pile at my parents house, that i know has 15-20year old pieces of wood that work just fine. They might burn a little faster than new ones, but it seems like they last longer then a year....

Good deal, thats what I was thinking, that they are dry as a bone thus will burn faster. I guess one could remove the shed top once or twice a year during a hard rain to let them get soaked again, thus perserving their moisture content, but not enough to rot them. Thanks for your post!

I agree with Survival, as long as you could perserve the moisture content to some degree to control rot. However, I think the biggest issue would be insects eating the heck out of it.
