Hi I,ve got a huge pile of firewood.I may sell some of it but I would rather they just come to my yard and pick it up themselves. I used to know how much space one cord of split wood would take up in the box of full size pickup truck but I forget.
Does anyone know??

Most all are the right answers below. Some is sold by weight as average around here for hardwood is 5600# per cord. The density of different woods vary and a 4x4x8 stack of say hickory will weigh more than poplar. A one cubic foot block of red oak weighs about 56 pound, but that is solid mass which would make a cord seem to weigh much more. But since it is stacked, it will weigh about the average. Most are market ploys for selling the same thing.

One cord = 128 cubic feet and that's that. Never mind "face cords" or "ricks".

128 cubic feet is dead on...

A pickup to the rails is somewhere around a third of a cord...

And it aint 'rick' here...It is 'run' LOL

3, 16 inch log-length runs in a cord...
