I have been in the wood bissness for decades and never seen such a poor measure,(not how I'd like to put it), That is NOT even close to a half cord. I sell a full load, all I can fit on my pickup TWICE for a cord. You have been _ _ _ _ _ _ with your pants on.
The wording of a cord, with which I am familiar, has the words “tightly stacked” right in the definition.how tightly are you supposed to stack your wood for this calculator?
No 1/2 TON pu can hold Cord of Wood. It would end up 5ft high. Too heavy.
A face cord of firewood, also called a rick of firewood, is different than a cord. The common dimensions for a face cord or rick of wood is 8 feet long x 4 feet high x any length of wood. Although the common length of wood is typically 16 inches, there is no exact length requirement.
Using the calculator the 3x3x5 pallet stack of almond that the local feed store here sells for $180 would actually be 0.35 of a cord (1/3). Not the 0.50 (1/2) of a cord that they claim it to be. In real cord terms that almond is over a half a grand per cord. ... no they don't deliver. ha ha.
This is why I gave up buying firewood. All of the firewood sellers in my area are like this. Its frustrating.
