State law requires firewood sales to be measured by one method only; the "Cord" defined as 128 cubic feet in volume. It is not legal to sell by the "tier." A "tier" identifies a stack four feet high and - eight feet long, cut to a customer's specified length. Such sales must be con- verted to cord measure or it's fraction. enforcement "Some popular size- we sales," he continued, "are a A legitimate tier of 12-inch cut wood (by both totalling 32 cubic feet (one- dealer) of quarter Cord) : A tier.f24- inch cut wood nsunfly for fweplaces totalling 64 cubic feet (one-half cord), l&inch cut 'tiers' are three-eights cord. All these are illegal me&sure*." It is also important to remember, according to the Sealer, that the buyer must receive a voucher certifying the amount sold (in terms of cord or fraction of a cord) the name and address of the seller and date sold. "Occasionally, buyers register complaints of shortages but are unable to tell us who sold them the wood. In theae cases we are unabele to investigate a legitimate complaint," said Bologna. All firewood buyers should know exactly what they're buying. They should insist on "cord measure" and obtain the required sales tag. ""Floaters" are in and out of the wood business before they can be stopped from selling short measures (deliberately or otherwise). The float,/', cast an unfair reflection on legitimate, honest wood dealers, so be wary of bargain prices and or offers to seal firewood without stating cord measure.
