Weight and Heat content figures are based on seasoned wood at 20% moisture content, and 85 cu ft of wood per cord. A cord of wood is defined as a stack 4 feet high, 4 feet deep and 8 feet long, which comes to 128 cu ft, but we deduct for air space between the pieces in the stack.

Identifying Plants - Plant Photos Wiki is a project to build a collection of articles about identifying plant species, with a photo (or photos) of each plant. I am starting with trees, since it is winter now. Please feel free to contribute photos or text to this project. --Steve Gallagher 19:09, 30 January 2007 (PST)
