I’ve heard from a couple of people that cutting the logs in the fall after the leaves fall and leaving them outside through the winter is supposed to help with the process. Something about the sap having more alcohol in it to prevent the tree freezing in the fall. Might just be an old tale but when people desire to not have the bark fall off the tree is also cut down in the fall so there may be something to it. The biggest thing will be as others mentioned, seals the ends so they don’t dry to fast and crack too badly. In log form there will always be some cracking but slower drying at the ends will minimize it.
