A cord of unseasoned oak

Dropped in our service yard, this pile of oak needed to be stacked along the fence and left to season for 6-8 months before it is ready to burn. Our current stock should last us through the winter, but come spring, who knows if oak will be available, what it's price will be or if it will be legal to sell it to burn in fireplaces? (Maybe if I buy some carbon credits?) I'd ordered 6 boxes of kindling to go with it, but kindling is not available since the cabinet and mill shops are shut down due to the economic slowdown. I'll have to come up with it the old fashioned way.
