Another leave the bark on for seasoning. If wood dries too fast you can get splitting at the ends. The bark helps slow it down.

The general rule of thumb is let it cure a year per inch of thickness. Sometimes you can get by with less. Depends on the stick.

Put it in a cool dry place and forget about it for a while.

I usually just use a pocket knife or utility knife to peel the bark when I don't want to keep it on.
