I used to sell wood when I lived up north. We used to just heep it up, let it dry a couple weeks and then throw it on the truck, stack the back row and it was great. We NEVER shorted a customer. A thrown on cord consists of 168 cu ft roughly. cause its not stacked. The reason I sold most of my wood on the greener side was I convinced my customers that it was best to get wood early in the spring (when supply is high, and demand was low). This allowed them to stack the wood undercover EARLY. And guess what... All I had to stack was that back row on the truck. I didnt have to store wood for much more than a couple weeks, IF THAT. And I NEVER got a complaint for shortage or being too green. My average customer was buying 6 cords/year. Firewood up there was a way of life.
