The price of a cord of wood varies greatly depending on the type of wood, availability, the geographical location and the location of the purchaser in relation to the seller. Prices can range from $50 to $100 a cord for mixed hardwood.

The price of a cord of wood may or may not include delivery and stacking fees. A full cord of wood is 4 feet by 4 feet by 8 feet. Wood that is used in wood stoves or for heating must be cut to stove length, so the quoted price of a cord of wood may be the price for stove length, not the full 4 feet of a standard cord.
