I believe there are recognised methods of measuring stacks of cord.  But there will be many variables which will affect the accuracy of such estimates, like straightness of the logs, size of logs, consistency of length of logs and even how neatly stacked they are.

 

At a very very rough guess I would say each cubic metre of cord will probably give a little over one cubic metre of loose logs maybe more if they are straight clean logs stacked well.

I buy stacks measured by meters it is the length of the sack x height x length of the timber = -40% for air

i believe an artic holds 28meters and some one said awhile ago that they get about 40-45 ibcs per load.
