Title: Moisture changes in oak and hickory fuel chips on roofed and unroofed Louisiana air-drying grounds as affected by pile depth and turning of chips

Author: Koch, Peter;

Date: 1983

Source: Forest Products Journal 33(6):59-61

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Freshly cut whole-tree hickory chips had lower moisture content (MC) initially and dried more rapidly than those of southern red oak. Such chips spread during April 1981 in roofed trays did not dry to 20 percent MC, ovendry-weight basis, faster than those spread in October 1980. In roofed trays, unturned chips spread 4 inches deep generally dried more rapidly than if spread 8 or 12 inches deep. Times to 20 percent average MC for layers 4, 8, and 12 inches deep were 78 to 94, 79 to 136, and 81 to 150 days, respectively.
