Split the wood: reveal the internal moisture content by splitting the wood. The heart of the wood often contains more moisture than the outside. Measure in 3 different places: Place the moisture meter at three strategic points, perpendicular to the grain of the wood. This ensures a thorough analysis of the moisture content. Average for greater reliability: increase accuracy by averaging the three measurements. This will give you a reliable result that will enable you to take the right measures to optimise the moisture content.... These simple but effective measures will ensure that the moisture content of your wood is perfectly measured, Firewood can have a moisture content of up to 20%.
