# Firewood & Cord Wood Calculators

## Cord Calculator: How much firewood is in my woodpile?

A cord of firewood measures 4′ x 4′ x 8′ and contains 128 cubic feet. A “face cord” is 1/3 of a cord of wood, with the idea being that many folks cut their firewood into 16″ pieces. There will be three rows of 16″ pieces in 1 cord. 3 rows*16″=48″ or 4′ wide. A “face cord” is sometimes called a “rick”.

## Pieces Of Firewood In A Cord: How many pieces of firewood are in a cord?

Note: Firewood is not cut perfectly square and is not (and should not be) stacked with no space in between pieces. This is a total approximation, but it may help give you ideas.

A face cord (1/3 of a cord) may contain around 220 pieces of split wood. A cord then would contain around 660 pieces of wood. Again, this is a rough count and there are lots of factors that could cause your cord to have less or more.

## Cords In A Truck: How many cords of wood fit into the bed of a pickup truck?

Note: Firewood is not cut perfectly square and is usually just thrown in a truck bed. This is a total approximation, but it may help give you ideas.
