A cord is stacked firewood measuring 128 cubic feet, usually 8' long, 4' high, 4' wide.

A face cord is a stack 8' long by 4' high, by the length the logs are cut, usually 18-24". The volume is poorly defined and varies between suppliers.

No clue what a rick is.

I was raised (by my southern Indiana dad) to understand that a rick was a half-cord; 64 cu. ft. 8' x 4' x 2'.

A face cord is a third-cord; 8' x 4' x 16". (3 x 16" = 48")
so three of these stacked next to each other are
8' x 4' x 4', a cord.

A cord is 128 ft³, usually taken as 4 ft x 4 ft x 8 ft. For a half cord, half ONE of those dimensions, for example 4 ft x 4ft x 4 ft.

I am a log scaler from Canada, and the fellow from Indiana was dead on with the cord wood measurement. In Canada we do log hauling and scaling in metric, so a 7 axle load of logs will net 49 to 52 m3 (cubic metres) 1 cord of wood = 3.624556416 m3.
A 50 m3 load of logs = 14 cords of firewood, people here think they are getting 20 cords and more.
1 cord = 128 cubic feet or 4'x4'x8' it is this way anywhere in the world.

Red face Re: firewood measurement

I ordered 3 cords of wood. The guy made a partial delivery today. I stacked it and ended up with a row of wood 15' x 4' (closer to 3'11") by 18". How much wood was delivered?
Thanks

18" = 1.5'
15' x 4' x 1.5' = 90 ft³
as 1 cord = 128 ft³ (8' x 4' x 4'), you have about 0.7 cord.
However, if he is selling you face cords (typically one-third of a cord) you have about two face cords.
