A cord is the unit in which firewood is measured, therefore professionals sell fire wood in cords not ricks, or truck loads etc. Part of providing a top notch service is educating your customers on what a cord is & people really respond to you taking a little time to teach them something.
This is what I tell my customers: a cord is 4x4x8 of tightly stacked firewood which comes out to 128 cubic feet. I cut my wood to 16" lengths so that's 3 rows of stacked wood 4 feet high and 8 feet long.
