How much wood is in a cord of wood?
A cord of wood is 128 cubic feet of stacked firewood. Stacked firewood fits together more tightly, so to make a full cord it is usually assumed that the wood is stacked. A cord of wood is based on the dimensions 4′ x 4′ x 8′ which equals 128 cubic feet. Many other dimensions can be used as long as they add up to 128 cubic feet.
For example, a full size 8′ pickup bed stacked to the top of the bed is about 1/2 cord. The bed of a standard long bed Ford F-250 also measures out to slightly more than a half cord if the wood is stacked even with the top of the bed. This includes factoring in the space taken up by the wheel wells. Three ricks of wood also make a cord.
How much wood is in a rick of firewood?
Stacked wood measuring 4 feet tall, 8 feet long, and 16 inches wide.
Cord vs. face cord vs. rick
A face cord and a rick can mean different things depending on who you talk to but they are generally a stack of wood that is 8 feet long and 4 feet high or any equivalent that would have a 32 square foot face.
The amount of wood in a rick or face cord will depend on how long the pieces are so these are not the most accurate firewood measurements. The standard length for firewood is 16″.
What is the best way to store Firewood?
Few insects that live in firewood will cause damage your home. The structural lumber in your home's walls is much to dry to sustain them. As long as you don't store firewood in your home, there is no need to be concerned. It is wise to be careful about where you store wood outdoors; it should be stored covered and raised off the ground with room for air to flow around it. You want to avoid storing it directly against your house or in a damp garage or basement.
Why is it important to use local firewood?
Always obtain your firewood locally because firewood can harbor insects and plants that are invasive in other areas. Most experts recommend that no firewood be moved more than 50 miles from its origin.
