Firewood

Firewood

Firewood is a forest-extracted commodity that has received a lot of attention the last couple of years due to rising home heating costs. According to Iverson et. al. (1991), approximately two million cords of firewood are harvested annually from Illinois woodlands. To put this number in perspective, almost 43 percent of all annual wood removals are used as firewood and nearly 75 percent of all firewood is cut from dead or downed trees. Please refer to the links below to learn more about using wood fuel for heating or how to manage your woodlot for firewood.
