What is a cord of wood?


A full cord of wood is a

“well stacked” pile that measures:

4 feet wide by 4 feet tall by 8 feet long.

Everyone's definition of a well stacked pile is different.  Before any money is exchanged or contracts are signed both the seller and the buyer must come to an agreement on what they believe to be a “well stacked” pile.


There are many factors that determine the current market value of a cord of wood.


· What kind of wood

· Length of pieces

· Size of the split pieces

· Dry or wet

· How tightly is the pile stacked

· If delivered, distance to customers location

· If delivered, neatly stacked or dumped at location

· If delivered, accessibility to pile location


These are a few factors to consider.
