ⓘ Face cord

A face cord is an informal measurement for stacked firewood, sometimes called a rick.

Width and height is typically the same as a cord, but the depth can vary. The front face is the same as a cord 4x8, hence the name. The depth is generally commonly 16" for use in residential fireplaces but can be anything from 12 inches to 32 inches.

This results in a volume of 32 to 85 cubic feet. Several states only allow wood to be sold by the cord or fractions of a cord, to avoid confusion among consumers.

The wood should be stacked "racked and well stowed" – meaning stacked so that the wood is parallel, and air gaps are minimized. It should not be cross-stacked alternating directions, as this adds considerable empty space to the stack.
