If you plan on turning the wood, use green and turn to finished or rough out dry and re-turn. If you want to use as boards, saw it or have it sawn as soon as possible and dry the boards. A year per inch for drying wood is a misleading relatively untrue guide.

Around here leaving the bark on Cherry is an invitation to powder post beetles. Trying to dry wood in a log form is a pretty unrewarding project.
