for a quarter of the price, a cord of dry wood provides as much energy as 200 to 225 gallons of fuel oil.
Wood’s sold by the rick not the cord around here, but it’s about $30/rick compared to $560/cord in New Hampshire. A rick of 12″ logs (pretty normal) is 1/4 cord. “Got any wood?” How about a little price gouging?
Why isn’t wood listed in the “Energy Sources” menu at DOE.gov ? I thought perhaps it might be lumped under renewables but it isn’t unless it’s included in the whole “biomass” category. For the average person looking for information on using wood for energy, wandering through the pipe dream biomass stuff isn’t going to happen.
