    I agree with everyone around 1-2 cord. Here is my old trailer with roughly 3 cords on it.

    The Wikipedia link I noted earlier mentions metric measurements. It is a "Stere" which is 1m3, or 0.276 cord. I saw a reference elsewhere of a metric cord being three Stere's. That is still only 0.83 cord.

    I found this link interesting. I knew wet wood was heavy. But they list a wet cord of oak at 4886lbs, dry at 3350lbs.

    Kinda makes sense for other countries that use metric system. A US or Canadian cord is 128 cubic feet. A "stere" is 1m3 cubic meter.

    Wonder about the US cord; it does not appear related similarly. It certainly is not a cubic yard.
