Q:

How much does a cord of wood weigh?

A:

The average weight of a cord of wood is between 4,700 and 6,075 pounds. The weight of a cord of wood varies according to the species of the tree, water content and the spacing between logs.

A cord is a stack of wood that is 4 feet high, 4 feet wide and 8 feet long. It is the standard unit of measure for wood. The 128 cubic feet taken up by a cord is too large to be hauled in a standard pickup truck. Most homeowners purchase wood by the pickup load, which is considered to be half a cord. Half a cord equals 64 cubic feet if the logs are neatly stacked.
