  • That’s $125 DC cord of wood.

    Everywhere else:
    From Wiki: The cord is a unit of measure of dry volume used in Canada and the United States to measure firewood and pulpwood. A cord is the amount of wood that, when “ranked and well stowed” (arranged so pieces are aligned, parallel, touching and compact), occupies a volume of 128 cubic feet (3.62 m3).[1] This corresponds to a well stacked woodpile 4 feet (122 cm) high, 8 feet (244 cm) long, and 4 feet (122 cm) deep; or any other arrangement of linear measurements that yields the same volume.

  • I reluctantly paid about $100 for a “cord” like this a couple years ago in Dupont. They were delivering as I was running out the door, and I came home to the smallest cord of wood I have ever seen.

    • “The smallest cord” is like “the lightest pound”. It is a cord or it isn’t. If you paid for a cord and you didn’t get the measurements Wobber mentions above, you got ripped off. So’s you know for next time!

  • anyone have any suggestions on cord delivery?

  • Anyone have a good source of firewood? Delivery best, but I could go and fill my car. I got a good deal on a half-cord that I split with a neighbor a couple of years ago, but my source’s email is now defunct.

  • I have tons of scrap (kiln dried whitewood aka stud lumber). Can I use that in the fireplace???

    • I wouldn’t. It’s almost certainly pressure treated. Burning it means releasing nasty chemicals.

      • ah

        Why would you think it’s pressure treated? Most 2x4s used in construction are not.

        Yes, you can burn it, but it may burn fast. It’s fir, and may also leave deposits on your chimney.
