Perhaps it was a bush cord made from very large rounds, years ago if I remember right I had a step side short bed f150 and it took 2 trips to get a full cord back home and that bed was 6.75' long.
no such thing as a bush cord in our area. Wood is sold as a rank or a cord
What do you call a 4 x 8 pile of 4 ft logs?  What do you call that pile when its split?

But there isnt the same amount of wood in each is there.  Like the fellow mentioned above, a bush cord of 24 dia logs might not stack the same when split but its still a cord

My answer to that is that it is a cord when delivered if it stacks to 128 ft3 in whatever lengths it arrives in. When you keep breaking wood down you loose void size. If you sell based on weight per cord and if you let wood sit around to dry a bit the seller looses. Drying stacked wood further in a dry basement the buyer looses volume.  Who looses the most: 1) dried from green to 25%, sold based on weight or 2) sold based on volume at 25% and dried further to 16% moisture ? ;D

Pre-commercial thinning pays off. :)

SD brings up what I was thinking all along. In Mass., a cord is four foot wood in the round. Cut and split is technically smaller than 128 ft3, but I've never head of anyone trying to sell it that way. In Mass. all wood has to be sold as a cord, 1283, or a fraction thereof. No truckloads, face cords, or any other unit.

I know from my days of cutting and hand splitting firewood that while that may not be a cord of wood, it probably sure felt like it by the time it be was done.  :D

This came up awhile back on the forum. We have a 20% loss from logs to split, dried firewood. I remember a couple other guys had close to that too here. We do sell 1/3 {face cords here}. 3 of them being a full cord. We wouldn't have happy customers splitting a logger cord and selling as a full cord of split

10 guys could stack either 20 times and the stacks won't match. Whether it's split or round when its stacked 4ft high 8ft long and 4 ft wide its a cord

Buying a cord of wood in nov-feb is like buying a hotdog at the ballpark.    You waiting to eat/heat, now pay up.

The winter time buyer will buy year after year from bad wood sellers selling short cords of wet wood.   One GAYRUNTEE is that as long as there are bad CONSUMERS there will be bad PROVIDERS ready to take advantage of the situation.

Educated wood buyers buy in the summer time.  Prices are lower and you can often times haggle.  The wood will be properly seasoned on time. 

BAD CONSUMERS breed more bad providers.  (Edited by Admin) about the buyers if ya dont like seeing this "1/2 ton guy" making a buck all winter.

It's closer to a full cord than many others.
