What is the size of a rick of wood?

The only official measure that is generally accepted is the cord – a stacked pile that measures 4' high by 4' deep by 8' wide (128 cubic feet). If the firewood is cut into 16” lengths, a cord (sometimes called a “bush cord”) will contain three rows. Each of these rows is one “face cord” or “rick.”

  • How many cords of wood does it take to get through the winter?

    So for a modest-sized, well insulated home with a new, efficient wood stove burning wood exclusively for heat (with no other major heat sources), most people in the northern States and Canada would be safe with 4 cords or so – but always better to have more, in case it's a cold winter.
