Measuring firewood can be confusing there is a bunch of jargon that firewood sellers use that can make is difficult to understand what you are getting. Sometimes sellers talk about a rick of wood or face cord. So what is it?
A rick of wood, also known as a face cord, is a stack of wood that is 8 feet long and 4 feet high or any equivalent measurements that would equal a 32 square foot face. The amount of wood in a rick depends on how long the log or pieces of wood are.
