We still use "cord" as a measurement of a volume of wood in Aotearoa New Zealand. It is not uncommon to see adverts for firewood at $x per cord of old man pine, etc. It is often replaced by "trailer load" or a "scoop", both of which are pretty debatable measures whereas cord is an agreed measure:

"A cord, a unit of measurement usually reserved for wood when it's been chopped and stacked, works out to about 3.62 m3, or a pile about 1.22m x 1.22 m x 2.44 m."
