    Curing wood in south Florida

    Recently trimmed an oak and have plenty of wood. Is it even possible to cure it in the humidity of a south Florida summer?
    Any recommendations or suggestions would be great.

    Split it, that will speed a bit of curing. There’s no reason not to! Go for it.
    I think I might pull the bark.

    Yep, and if you want to cure it faster crosscut into 2 or 3" chunks. Keep it out of the weather but let it breathe.
