This is a strange question, but I thought someone here probably knows the answer.... How much does a cord of wood weigh? (either "wet" or seasoned) There are lots of opportunities around this area to scrounge wood, and I find a little bit every couple days. Today I threw a bunch of logs in my truck and when I got home I had the bright idea to weigh them (loosely packed, my fireplace insert can hold probably 40 pounds of dried wood). I was a little surprised when I found out today I scrounged 340 pounds! After splitting and drying, that probably equates to 6-7 packed fireboxes. So how much does a full cord weigh? I'd also like to know because I have a cargo hauler which I could use to pick up rounds from a local tree-guy, but the hitch on the cargo hauler is only rated for 2000 pounds. Is a cord more than that?
