Towards the end of June this year the Bradford pear trees were being heavily pruned and I hobo'd some od the larger limbs for use in smoking. I selected two and weighed them and cut one into 2 inch long chunks and left the other about 18 inches long. The green chunks weighed1.52 pounds on June 29 and the stick was2.6 pounds on the same day. Mid August I weighed again and the chunks were .97 and the stick 1.8. Today They weighed .97 and 1.7. So my observation is that green wood will loose most of its moisture in 2 months or less.
