Count your cordwood. Well, measure it anyway

It appears that recent pressure for wood has driven some unscrupulous--or hellishly busy--wood dealers to short their customers. Thanks to an article on (the Internet version of the Globe) I learn where Mainers can go if they find that their wood doesn't measure up.

Anyone who suspects a dealer has delivered a short cord, after getting no response from the dealer, can contact the Maine Department of Agriculture's Quality Assurance section. State consumer protection officials can apparently effectively pressure a wood seller to make good on the sale.
