Thanks for all the replies folks!!! I agree there doesn’t seem to be anything “cut in stone” so to speak. I have recently taken wild black cherry burl and a big {probably the largest I have ever seen} red oak burl and cut them down and turned them into blanks on my lathe with not a crack or check yet!!! Around here it seems like if you just cut to length a section of trunk and leave the bark on it the thing will never dry out. it will lay on the ground and rot before any moisture leaves it. Even if you do not paint or otherwise seal the ends.
The peach log I was questioning about was as wet inside wen I got turning it as the day I cut it down. I really figured it should have dried out some, but now, after turning it I have to say probably not.
