How do I know if I’m getting a full cord of wood?

A cord of wood is 128 cubic feet, and cannot be delivered as one load in a regular pick-up truck. The wood must be neatly stacked before it can be measured to confirm you have received the full amount.  

 Ask for the seller to stack the wood (there may be a small fee for this), or to wait while you stack it, before paying the seller. Ask for an invoice with the seller’s name, address and phone number, the number or portions of cord(s) delivered, the date and the amount. Pay once you are satisfied that you have received the agreed upon amount. 

If you think you were shorted after the seller is gone, neatly stack the wood, and call our department to investigate. DO NOT BURN ANY OF THE WOOD UNTIL IT HAS BEEN INSPECTED. It can be helpful to take a picture of the stacked wood as soon as it has been stacked.
