What a cord of firewood looks like video transcript
Hi I'm Paul from boston firewood I'm going to show you what a cord of firewood should look like when you purchase it whether it be from us or anybody else
a cord of wood is defined as 128 cubic feet that's all you really need to know is the cord itself should be measured from one end to the other folks with 48 inches that's 3/16 inch logs should be 48 inches tall
Ours is a little bit taller because we have gaps when we bundle it was all stacked tightly 48 inches deep and then it when you come down this way a cord of wood should be 96 inches all right eight feet long
we try to primarily to stay with maple ash and birch occasionally there is some oak but oak is a difficult wood to kill dry so most most the time we you find oak in a kiln-dried cord of wood the won't burn or it Burns with difficulty
Because oak this much thicker and denser and without given the proper drying time it doesn't work well
We sell primarily in Boston metropolitan area there's probably a 15 mile radius of Boston we find that works best we will go further but that's the area we try to focus on is Boston and Metro West
For customers that want to check how much wood they got after it was delivered and have questions about the amount they received, we have a firewood calculator. The other situation can be odd shapes of the stacked wood but you till want to figure out how much wood you got relative to cord dimensions or cubic feet we have our firewood calculator that can be used to take the height, width, and depth and convert it to what those dimensions would be in terms of cubic feet and a cord of wood. .
