Wood Prices Higher, Too
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.
