Someone asked, so I'll answer.
A standard face cord measures 8 feet long by 4 feet high by 16 inches in depth. Three face cord equals one cord. The depth/length of the wood can be more or less than 16 inches and the price will reflect this. Most people use 16 inch pieces of fire wood. We are currently paying $45 per face cord for hard maple and oak and we pick it up nine miles from here. Our supplier is going to place a trailer beneath his wood processor conveyor & fill it to the brim. After measuring how many FACE cord it will fill (he estimates five) the price to unload the trailer (thus saving him the time of stacking cords of wood) will be $140 - a great savings to us.
Well gotta scoot. Sweetie has an opthamology appointment this morn.
