Firewood Measurements


We believe a great fire starts with the right amount of firewood. Whether you're warming up your home during the winter or planning a cozy evening around the fire pit, understanding firewood measurements is key to ensuring you have the perfect amount of wood. In this comprehensive guide, we'll walk you through the various firewood measurements Fire & Ice provides, including face cord or rick and bundle, so you can make informed decisions for your firewood needs.

Face Cord or Rick:

A face cord or rick typically consists of a single stack of wood, usually measuring 4 feet in height and 8 feet in length. The crucial factor that distinguishes a face cord from a full cord is its width, which can vary. In most cases, a face cord is one-third the width of a full cord. This variation in width results in a volume of approximately 42.67 cubic feet for a standard face cord.


The appeal of face cords lies in their practicality for homeowners who want a moderate amount of firewood without the commitment of purchasing a full cord. It strikes a balance between having enough wood for seasonal heating or occasional fires and not having to deal with the excessive storage requirements and costs associated with a full cord. This flexibility makes face cords a popular choice for those who want to enjoy the warmth and ambiance of a fire without the need for large-scale firewood storage.



If you're looking for convenience and portability, firewood bundles are the way to go. These pre-packaged bundles are perfect for occasional use, such as camping trips or spontaneous backyard fires. While the volume of a bundle can vary, it typically contains enough wood for a single evening of enjoyment. Firewood bundles are a great choice when you don't want to invest in, haul and store a larger quantity of wood.
