A birch tree will take up to nine months to dry after being cut down and into pieces. The seasoning process can be sped up if the birch wood is split. Pieces of wood with bark on them do not loose water content very quickly. The more debarked surfaces on a piece of birch wood, the less time it takes to dry.
