The cracking is usually worse near what was the center of the tree as well so sometimes you can reduce the cracking by removing the rings around the center (AKA the pith) of the tree if that is possible. If you leave them outside, make sure you don’t leave them in the sun. The sun will accelerate drying and make the cracking worse even when it is cool outside.

I just tried Anchor seal 2 for the first time recently and I have been amazed at how well it works to prevent cracking. Once the cracking has started, it may not be as effective but I would still give it a try to reduce further damage.
