Since wood dries thru the end grain at a much, much faster rate than thru the long grain it is imperative to seal the end grain asap. It doesn’t matter if it is sliced up. “Moron” above has the best advice. Hopefully the wood will stay straight, it mostly depends on how horizontally they were growing. The more vertical, the better. I would turn off the dehumidifier until the ends were coated, then a fan would be nice; you may have a mold problem unless you use larger stickers, I use 1” minimum but have found better luck with 1 1/2” for wetter wood.
