A cord of wood is a stack of firewood measuring 4 feet high by 8 feet long. The size of a cord of wood can vary slightly from region to region, but it is generally accepted that a full cord measures 128 cubic feet. Firewood is typically sold by the cord or fractional cords such as 1/2, 1/4, and 1/8. Many people wonder if they can fit a full cord of wood in their pickup truck.
The answer to this question depends on the size of your truck bed and how you stack the wood in it. If you have an extended bed pickup truck with 8 foot long bed, then you should be able to fit a full cord of wood in it with ease. Just make sure to stack the wood securely and evenly so that it won’t shift or fall out while driving.
If you have a standard 6 foot long pickup truck bed, then fitting a full cord of wood into it may be tricky.
You will need to measure the length and width of your truck bed as well as the length and width of the firewood before attempting this task. It is also important to remember that firewood can be heavy, so make sure that your truck can handle the additional weight.
For those who only need a portion of a cord, such as 1/2 or 1/4, then fitting it into your pickup truck should not be too difficult. A half-cord is 64 cubic feet while a quarter-cord is 32 cubic feet. These sizes are much more manageable for most standard sized truck beds.
In conclusion, whether or not you can fit a full cord of wood in your pickup truck depends on the size and capacity of your vehicle as well as how securely you stack the wood in it. If you have an extended bed pickup truck with 8 foot long bed, then fitting a full cord should not be difficult for you. Otherwise, consider purchasing smaller amounts such as 1/2 or 1/4 cords which are easier to fit into most standard sized trucks.
