Did you know that a firewood seller cannot legally sell by the truckload? It has to be in increments of a cord — 128 cubic feet of tightly stacked wood.
How much wood can fit in a six-foot pickup truck bed? Barely one-third of a cord.
These are just some of the facts on this short video produced by the County of Marin, University of California Cooperative Extension Marin and Kay Productions. Have a look.
If you think you received less than the amount of firewood you paid for, contact the Alameda County Office of Weights and Measures.
Before burning wood in your fireplace, check for Spare the Air days. You can find the day's wood burning status at the Bay Air Air Quality Management District's website.
