If you can get air to them, such as a fan, it will probably air dry to 12-14% MC in a 2-4 months. I have some Black Walnut that was logged and lumbered to 1” thick in April, that had been stickered and in my shed. I put some in my solar kiln a little over a week ago and it was already at 14% (this is in the center of the board), so it is air drying fast. It only took a week in the kiln to get to 6.5%.
