I don’t have the patience to wait for wood to “rot” a little before using it. Most of the spalted wood I have came from trees that were rotting on the tree for a while or the firewood pile.

Spalted ash is beautiful. Various logs in leave to the weather for a couple years before sawing.

I’ve Spalted ash before and have received already Spalted ash along with pecan and hackberry, I don’t bother with sealing I just set them up on their end in a corner of my backyard and cover with black plastic after I wet it. I have some pecan back there right now.

Do it on a regular basis. I have woods all around me, and when a tree comes down that I’m interested in, I’ll just make sure it’s off the ground, or get it off the ground with some off-cuts if it is. If it needs to be moved due to location (near the house), then I’ll move it somewhere and put some off-cuts under it to keep it off the ground. Then I just wait a while and let nature take it’s course. No Ash around here though… mostly all Oak.
