How many logs are in a cord?

Do they even measure a cord by number?


Answer by  fosterszoo (11)

Cords are measured by the stack size not the number of logs. Cords are 4 foot-long logs stacked 8 feet wide and 4 feet tall equaling 128 cubic feet.


Answer by  Thom (29)

A cord of wood is a measure of volume, being 128 cubic feet that is a stack measuring 4 X 4 X 8 feet. Thus, the number of logs in a cord actually depends upon the size that the logs are cut into. Cords can be measured by a fraction of a number, such as 1/2, etc.

A cord of wood is a measurement of volume. So no, it is not by number. A cord is 128 cubic feet. Logs are generally sold as 1/3 cord, or face cord. Typically it is 16 inches deep, four feet high, and eight feet long.

A cord of firewood is actually a measurement of the stack the logs will make. A cord measures four feet by four feet by eight feet. The actual number of logs in a cord depends on the diameter and the length of the logs.

Well, that's all very nice, but it didn't answer the question! Of COURSE it's going to depend on the sizes of the logs, but on average, what is a 'ball park' sort of number? How many logs? What's the answer to that question? Try again...
