how long do you let the wood sit to season. how much wood is in a cord. I have thought about this also

the guy i buy all the wood from lets the wood sit for 1 year and then he sends it thru the wood processing machine,gets cut split and then up conveyor into the pile.a cord is 4ftx4ftx8ft ..i have been told by old timers in the wood business that a true cord is measured before split at those measurements but we load are masondumps wrightup to the hilt and have not ever got a complaint.if your gonna try to make money at this try and look at a suplier of wood unless you have lots of free time to split and cut wood.my friend in the wood business loves being the supplier ,he gets all the wood from the jobs hes done ,he has the proc machine,the log truck so this is all cash in the winter for him and i make a boatload just delivering the wood ..goodluck i hope i helped out
