The Stacks are so constructed to allow free circulation of air around each part as far as possible. The stacks are properly sheltered from direct sun and winds and rain.

Air Seasoning The traditional method of seasoning timber was to stack it in air and let the heat of the atmosphere and the natural air movement around the stacked timber remove the moisture.

The process has undergone a number of refinements over the years that have made it more efficient and reduced the quantity of wood that was damaged by drying too quickly near the ends in air seasoning.

Air is circulated around the charge (stacked timber) and the temperature and humidity can be varied to give optimum drying. Air seasoning or natural seasoning. Care should be taken not to expose the freshly converted timber stacked for seasoning to severe winds or to sun.

Definition: Seasoning is defined as the removal of moisture that is present in the timber in its green state. A piece of green wood, on exposure to atmosphere; loses moisture, and the rate of drying depends on the nature of timber, thickness of the piece, temperature, relative humidity and the rat.

Once the sawn hardwood material reaches fibre saturation point or slightly below (at a moisture content of about 20% to 25%), it is then placed in kilns usually for up to 10 - 14 days (depending upon the thickness of the sawn timber) in order to bring the moisture content down to between 10% and 15%.
