    they were standing dead. very few have moisture in them. nothing that won't dry out by the time it goes in the stove.

    nice , a lot of folks are going back to the basics of using wood to heat. it will be good to get dead timbers out of the forest so the live plants/timbers can thrive as long as people know what there doing when there felling trees :confused:

    there is two types of firewood cords, pulp cords and face cords. a face cord is 18" wide, 4' tall, and 8' long. a pulp cord is (correct me if i'm wrong) 8' wide, 8' long, 4' tall stacked.

    we are taking all of this off my stepdads 10 acres just to clean it up a bit instead of having a logging company come in and mess the entire place up with heavy machinery

    A regular cord of wood, as firewood is measured, cut & sold by, is 128 cubic feet, normally measured as 8' long, 4' high. 4' wide. A person can't get a full cord of wood on a longbed pickup without side-racks, especially if it's cut into stove lengths.

    Hmm that looks like alot of work, I'll stick with my bags of wood pellets. $600/year for 3 tons and I'm all set.

    By law in most (if not all) states, there is only one measurement for a cord - 128 cubic feet.
