from the net:

A face cord of wood is a stack of wood that measures 4 feet high by 8 feet long. The depth of a face cord will vary depending on the length of the wood. Most firewood is cut to a length of 16 to 18 inches.

Thats right, and a "Rick" is any amount of wood that the buyer and seller agrees on.

FWIW: Rick used to be loosely "defined" as 1/4 cord, 32 cu..ft. (Early 1950s): 2'Hx4'Wx4'L. Think it was because it approximated an of the era pickup bed full with gate closed.

My 77 chevy C 20 pickup would take on 1/2 cord of oak edgings from a pipe rack that measured 4x4x4 feet.My trailer has a floor that measures 4x8, sides are 2 feet high.Cant understand all the confusion about what a cord should measure.Sawed to stove length wood will take up less space.A 10 cord load of tree length wood will shrink to 8 cords when sawed to 4 foot length.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seePeople are always trying to fine a way to dupe others. Another good example is the shrinking pound can of coffee. :cry:

I don't think a face cord is a legal measurement here in Ohio. I know it is not legal to sell wood by anything except by the cord but that law is completely overlooked all the time, unless it has been repealed that I am not aware of.
