6yds if its leveled off. probably 8 or 9 if you heap and tarp it.

To get that load done real quick go and get yourself a couple 10 tine pitch forks and have a couple of guys use them, theses are the best for doing mulch way better then those big shovels.

i'd say about 6yards, but why would you only have it 1ft high. If you make it higher you could get like 15 Yards on there

8 yards

Not to be a smart a$$ but here is the formula
length x width x height= square feet
1 yard (3 x 3 x3) is equal to 27 cubic feet
12x6x3= 216 cubic feet
216 cft divided by 27 cft = 8 yards
