High I am Paul from bostonfirewood.com here to show you what a face cord of firewood or one-third of a cord should look like when you purchase it. The logs should be 16 inches wide the pile itself should be 8 feet long and should be 4 feet high this pile is a little bit higher because of the fact that we have voids in the stack because the wood is wrapped so we compensate for that.
The term face cord comes from the fact that when people look at the wood from a distance and at eye level across the street you can not see the other rows if it was a full cord, so at face value it looks like a cord. thus the term face cord. When you stack it up it should always equal one-third of a full cord of wood.
