Ok I have a Shed full of Green Firewood.

My wife is thinking it might build up heat and catch fire like Hay.

Should she be concerned?

No, we normally cut green wood all the time.

The Shed is enclosed so yes I see her concern but I have never heard of it catching fire.

yeah the only reason hay catches on fire is when its we, is because its starting to decompose. Im sure theres plenty of fancy words to describe it,but wood doesnt do it.

Wet wood is not like moisture over 20+% in baled hay and then stacked tightly together. Many a barn and a years work have gone up in flames, but never a wood pile.

Linseed oil soaked rags will spontaneously combust 100 percent of the time.

Well I went out to the shed. The Wood is doing something I have never seen. It is growing a Green Mold.

Strange very strange.
