I’ve also heard the 1” per year rule of thumb as well… however, ash wood is supposed to have less moisture than other woods when it is green! Like the old adage, “Ash wet or ash dry, the King will warm his slippers by!”
I burn firewood, and the ash wood I’ve cut burns real nice within a couple of weeks of cutting/splitting, so I would think your planks would take a little less time to get down to the moisture content that is attainable via air drying… it would be interesting to test that theory!
