my habet if one has the room is to take the trunk and tie the bark on if starting to come loose then paint both ends and if even as thick as 2 feet in diamater keep for at least 4 and if on the thicker side 6 years out of the rain and off the ground and it will be natural dried I personally do this on some select pieces and after dried split and cut them up in to lumber as can the wood quality is better then kiln dried I feel but as said is just a suggestion hope this helps
