    That's for sure! Is it really only a 1/2 cord. It looks like way more than that.

    That's a pic of the sellers ,wood in his barn
    .
    I have not stacked it yet but , he dumped in a bucket full for a face cord ,then for the other half of a face cord they counted splits, any way, I think the bucket full was more than a face cord, we will see.
    I was going to get 2 face cords but was afraid I might over load my trailer, and it was 37 mi back home loaded, then !!! I get home and find right trailer tire half flat, leaking valve stem Wheew:eek:

    At that price I would have picked up at least a couple cords. Heck, if I could get hardwood for that price I would have taken the whole lot. Might have to build another shed though.
