I like to get the bark off of it, but you don’t have to. Here is an article that I wrote on some best practices for drying green lumber if you are interested: http://www.wwgoa.com/articles/one-great-tip/should-i-buy-my-lumber-green-/.

The guideline for 1 year of drying tie per inch varies dramatically by area, and you get virtually no drying progress during the winter in the north country. I put a few hundred bf of cherry and walnut up in my attic (in MN) this past March and it is ready to go now (was ready in abt 3 months) at 9-10% mc. Granted the process works slightly faster in the attic because it is hotter up there, but is about the same in the garage.
