Buying Firewood? Don't Get Burned

A cord is a legal unit of measurement defined by the Weights and Measures Regulations as "128 cubic feet of stacked roundwood (whole or split, with or without bark) containing wood and airspace with all bolts of similar length piled in a regular manner with their longitudinal axes approximately parallel".
