My brother in law trimmed an English Walnut tree and I got four logs that are around 18” long and 4” thick. I’m going to resaw them to boards but was wondering if I should dry them whole or cut them up and let them dry that way? I’ve never done this before and want to not have them split or crack as they dry.

You won’t get much lumber out of that. If you have a bandsaw, saw it, cut out the pith, and seal the ends with paint.
