What is the difference between a rick, a face rick, and a cord of wood, and what is a fair cost for selling those?

A cord is a neatly stacked pile of wood 4 ft x 8 ft with each piece of wood 4ft in length. A face cord has same general measurements but the depth of the pile is the length of the firewood logs. A Rick and fireplace cord is one third of a cord. There are regional differences so this is not a steadfast rule.

And what is a fair price for a cord of wood? or the price of a face cord of wood.?

A face cord ranges from $55-70 and a whole cord ranges from $170-210.

THANK YOU!!!
