For centuries, freshly cut lumber has been allowed to dry in response to the temperature and humidity of the surrounding air, also known as the ambient conditions. The result was air-dried or air-seasoned lumber which, in Missouri, typically has a moisture content (MC)[superscript]1 between 12 percent and 14 percent.
