    I agree that is the way it should be. And the way the law is written in our state. But it still goes un-enforced unless someone files a clomplaint.

    But in a whole, The system could certainly be better. I understand the reason for the way it is thogh. But there have been may times I have sold wood by measurments other than a cord. For example, how we stack wood in the barn, it isnt quite a full cord. Often times when people stop to inquire, I just point at a full row, and tell them its about 0.8 cord and it will be X amount of dollars. Technically its illegal, but they see IN PERSON the exact wood and amount they will get for said price.

    But yea, the crooks on c-list, I see all the time at really low "per cord" prices, and know they are selling only face cords. And then the ones that sell "per truck load". Okay, long bed, short bed? full-sized or ranger/s-10? Stacked or tossed? how high?

    There is also a portion of the law that stipulates what the moisture content is allowed to be also. Cause too many of these guys are selling junk wood. Soft, green, or rotten.

    The law is very well written, just un-enforced
