Wood Prices Higher, Too

Fire

People who know say the price of wood used for fuel will be going up along with other fuels.

According to the Nebraska Forest Service and several firewood suppliers in Nebraska, consumers should expect to pay more than $120-$150 which was the cost of a cord of wood last year. Cost increases are being attributed to increases in other types of fuel.

Generally, wood prices do not change from year to year, but rather over a five- to ten-year period.

A cord is a standard volume measure for fuelwood. Typically, a cord of wood measures 4 feet x 4 feet x 8 feet.
