Top Tips:

  • Freshly felled timber has a moisture content of in between 30 to 60% depending on the type of wood.
  • Split and store the wood under cover from the rain and then open to wind and sun for one year, or preferably two.

Our Wood Moisture Meter can also be used on timber, floors and buildings to detect a moisture content.
