    I don't get the whole picture, BR.

    is the 16" dimension the length or diameter? Seems it must be length....so what's the diameter?

    Must have been a good size to get a cord. Take a before and after pic next time, would be interesting to see.

    so,

    an average of 34" across = diameter of 17
    length is 13 *16" / 12" = 17.3'

    volume = length * pi * r * r / 144 = 109 cu ft

    I have read in here that a cord stacked is 128 cu ft but given all of the air, it is about 85 cu ft of wood.

    109/85 = 1.28 cords.

    That's one big trunk

    I have a standard long bed which is 18" to the gunwhales and 1' racks and it was mounded slightly, so. . . 2.5'x6'x8' = 120cf + the mound. I figure it about a cord or so.

    It was a beautiful log too. Knot and rot free with very dense and distorted grain.
