Would there be much difference in quantity between 2m3 of tightly stacked wood as in the pic below and wood 'thrown' in to a 1m3 bag?

In other words, how much would be left to go in the third bag!

I weighed a cubic meter of beech the other day. Freshly split it weighed 600kg. So a ton of this would make 1.67 cubic meters.


I suppose it depends on the wood a bit for how much volume a ton of wood makes.

Michael, As I stated in another thread regarding the discussion on cubic metres. Here's a good rule of thumb:


1 SOLID m3 = 1.54 STACKED m3 = 2.5 THROWN m3

1 STACKED m3 = 0.65 SOLID m3 = 1.63 THROWN m3

1 THROWN m3 = 0.62 STACKED m3 = 0.4 SOLID m3
