A cord is 128 cubic feet of stacked wood. Cubic feet are derived by multiplying L x W x H. A cord is most generally thought of as 4' x 4' x 8' but can be any 3 dimensions multiplied to equal 128'.
At Wonser Woods, we do not display our wood in stacked cords. Our wood is piled, and we allow you to load whatever fits in your vehicle. We then calculate the cubic feet you have loaded as a percentage of a cord, and pro-rate the cord price.
For example, if the bed of your Toyota pickup is 6' x 4 ½' and you stack the wood 1 ½' high you will have 6' x 4.5' x 1.5' = 40.5 cubic feet. On a Toyota pickup we allow 4 cubic feet for wheel wells, so the portion of a cord you take will be calculated as follows: (40.5 - 4) /128 = .285. This percentage is then multiplied by the price per cord to arrive at the amount you owe.

Since he was a chief in a modern society, he had never been taught the old secrets. When he looked at the sky, he couldn't tell what the winter was going to be like. Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he told his tribal community that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the village should collect firewood to be prepared. But, being a practical leader, after several days, he got an idea. He went to the phone booth, called the Environment Canada National Weather Service and asked, 'Is the coming winter going to be cold?' 'It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold,' the meteorologist at the weather service responded. So the chief went back to his people and told them to collect even more firewood in order to be prepared. A week later, he called Environment Canada's National Weather Service again. 'Does it still look like it is going to be a very cold winter?' 'Yes,' the man at National Weather Service again replied, 'it's going to be a very cold winter.' The chief again went back to his people and ordered them to collect every scrap of firewood they could find. Two weeks later, the chief called Environment Canada's National Weather Service again. 'Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?' 'Absolutely,' the man replied. 'It's looking more and more like it is going to be one of the coldest winters we've ever seen.' 'How can you be so sure?' the chief asked. The weatherman replied, 'The Indians are collecting firewood like crazy.'
