A moisture meter takes out the guesswork. Wood dries faster in climates of low humidity. At least six months is a good guideline. You won't get good penetration unless the wood is dry.

As always, it "depends" on where the wood is...
(1) Indoors in a blazing hot shop ??? (2) Outdoors (as in a deck) ???
Six months is a good measurement for most applications.
