  • How to convert cubic yards to cord wood measurement

    Four cubic yards of wood = how many cords?

    A cord is 4 x 4 x 8 feet of wood = 128 cubic feet

    I don't think it is as simple as saying a yard = 3 feet therefore is 12 cubic feet of wood.

    Thank you.

    A chord of wood would be 4.741 cu yards, so if someone was selling 20 cu. yards of wood, it would be equivalent to 4.22 Chord..

      1 Cord of Wood = 4' x 4' x 8' = 128 cu ft

      128 cu ft / (9 cu ft / cu yd) =*14.22 cu yd per Cord

        Cord = 128 ft is correct
        However 1 yd = 27 ft (3x3x3), so 4.74 yd

            12500 m x (1 ft/0.3048 m) x 1 chord/128 ft = 3448.7 cords
