Brown wood texture, dark hardwood floor, reddish wood grain, high resolution background and texture. To calculate a cord of wood simple multiply Width x Height x Length and divide that by 128. A lot of consumers are confused by these different measurements and end up getting a lot less wood than they were expecting.
Wood that is not stacked and instead thrown into a loose pile has more air space between the spaces so it would require different measurements.
Using full feet for the width can be a problem since standard length for pieces of firewood is usually 16 inches. In other words when stacking standard 16″ firewood the width of your dimension will be based on the number of stacks or rows. The amount of solid wood in a cord can depend on the size and shapes of the pieces and who stacks it.
Cord of wood dimensions are easy to measure when wood is stacked, but not so easy if it is not stacked. If the wood is thrown in the truck, just measure the dimensions of the space that the wood takes up in the truck. I don’t know what you are doing with the top numbers but the bottom numbers are right in coming out to a little over 2 cords. The information on this site is the best explanation of a cord of wood that I have found on the internet.
Hey I have a few questions for a class I am taking that I was hoping someone could help with. BTW, I have to say that the inability of people to calculate simple volumes is a sad indictment of our education system.

Adding that portion about the education system was a personal statement that you might feel strongly about, but it was unwarranted and a waste of time, let alone unkind, to post it here. Hi just found this site and would love to have you answer this question, my husband is looking to sell off some of our wood to a friend but he doesn”t want to have to split it first. There are differences between the way many people measure firewood, but a true legal cord of wood is 128 cubic feet of stacked wood.
Knowing how much firewood is in a full cord, and the differences between these measurements, will help ensure you are actually getting the amount of wood you are paying for.
If you have space between the stacks, which a few inches of space is recommended for air circulation, these of course will have to be factored in. In a loose pile, wood pieces will be more random so they will take up more space than pieces stacked together tightly. This is one reason to buy wood from someone who stacks the wood on the delivery truck so you can measure the wood and verify the dimensions before they unload it. You would have to check your local area for prices and it depends on what kind of wood it is and if it is dry or not. There is a huge difference between a full cord of wood and other types of cords, like a face cord, a rick and a fireplace cord. It’s hard to get an accurate measurement with a heaping pile but consider around 180 cubic feet for the cord of wood dimensions of unstacked wood.
And if it wasnt answered read the postings anyways and try to figure it out with out being lazy. I now live in texas and they are crazy they are telling me that two stacks 4x8x16inch are a cord.
Just a little background each year we get 20 cords of maple and oak logs delivered most of these are fireplace size so they may only need to be split in half to be used.

Check you local craigslist and the food stores bulletin boards(the little tear off numbers) for folks and prices.
You may get a load of wood that measures out to be a full cord on the truck, but then when you stack it, it may measure out be a few cubic feet more or less. The price of firewood varies depending on what part of the country you are in, I sell wood for $350 per cord where I am, and that is delivered. If there are wheel wells or other things in the bed that take up space, subtract the space they take up. They are ripping people off here and they also sell it delivered which they say means delivered unloaded and stacked. Husband just wants to build a rack to fill as a guide to a face cord for selling a few face cords.
This is fine, except for when it comes to measuring the wood, there will be more air space between the pieces and less solid wood in a cord. Since a cord of wood is 128 cubic feet, we take your cubic foot volume of the stack, 144.48 and divide it by 128. Type of wood will factor into price as well, weed trees (Alder) will normally be cheaper than Fir and Oak.
I will be cutting wood with a partner and want to offer a fair price but don’t want to be taken advantage of.
