Landon,

If your not going to have it quartersawn then 12” diameter on the small end would be reasonable if the log was straight and reasonably free of defects like major knots, hollow and rotten spots, etc.

Generally you want to have them milled as soon as possible. Drying in log form is not required or recommended.

Coat the ends with a good endsealer if possible (Anchorseal works well). Do this as soon as possible after felling the trees and cutting into sawlog lengths.

Good Luck and …

Be Careful!
