If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.

It's really hard to say, because I've only had a wood stove for 3 years now, and I admittedly haven't been burning the most seasoned wood the whole time. Also I've gotten wood from so many different sources including from my own property, and buying unsplit wood from a friend in the tree business at a discount, etc., so I don't have a good handle on the market value of wood, and I couldn't even tell you how long a cord of wood will last me since I acquire it in random quantities.

But I can give you some data points on the wood brick fuel. 40 pounds of wood bricks will last me about 8 hours of burning, and I only burn for typically 8 hours a day (monday-friday) which means a pallet (1 ton) will last me about 50 days. But since I burn more on the weekends, it really only lasts me 30 days. A pallet used to cost $300 but they just raised it to $330.

I'm sure it's probably more expensive than traditional firewood, but the convenience benefits are huge.

Thanks for the info.
