Stereo cubic meter

Measure used for stacking non-uniform wood.

A term derived from European forestry practices since the Middle Ages and used as a reference for piles of about 1 cubic meter of non-uniform, round wood, with gaps between the logs or branches. The expression has been used in Brazil since the Colonial period for storage and marketing of almost all types of raw wood, from firewood for bakeries and restaurants to large industries. It is a measure specially applied to the crooked vegetation of the Caatinga or Cerrado. Despite its widespread use, it is not part of the International System of Units and Measurements, adopted by Brazil, and is not recognized by the National Institute of Metrology, Quality, and Technology (Inmetro).
