If electricity prices rise as they did last winter, wood burning can be a good option.
But where do you buy the wood?
– There are no gas stations or chain stores selling the cheapest wood. It’s the local wood producers who do, says editor Rune Østgård in Norsk Ved til Honest Home. no.

At the Plantation outside Lillestrøm in Akershus, the package price for five woods is 300 kroner. The bags are 40 liters, which gives a bag of 60 kroner or one liter price of one crown and fifty øre.
By comparison, the farmer Alf Kristian Ruud sells in Bjørkelangen in the same county, 60 liters birch grove bags for 60 kroner.
You get 20 liter extra at the same price.
– Delivered right at the door is the price of 75 kroner, says Ruud.
Market survey 2010 as Norsk By recently conducted among its members shows that the national average for a 60 liter sack of birch wood is 66 kroner. For a 40 liter the price is 53 kroner.
Six out of ten woodpeople say in the survey that prices will remain unchanged throughout the autumn and winter. The rest will raise the price by 8 percent.
The larger chains are therefore having trouble competing with the local farmer.
Anund Wigen at Wigen Gård in Buskerud has about the same prices as Rud Rudder Bjørkelangen.
And Lars Røhnebæk, Haug Farm at Kløfta, says he sells 60 liter bags for 80 kroner.
According to the industry, you have the most to pick up on price if you order big bags, that is, 1000-liter bags.
Oslo Vedhandel or Christiania Vedforretning sells, for example, 1000 liters birch peat bags to 950 per piece. If you order 3 or more pallets, the price is 900 kroner. It will be under one penny liter.

Steer away from gas stations
Statoil in Nydalen, Oslo sells 40 liters of wood for 119 kroner. And at Shell at Kastellet on Nordstrand in Oslo, a 60 liter bag costs 109 kroner, showing a sampling.
It’s therefore a bad idea to swing around the petrol station on the way up to the cabin when the local farmer can probably deliver the wood cheaper right at the door.
According to Norwegian Standard 4414 for wood, the best wood class, Extra Class, must contain a maximum of 20 percent moisture.
The poorest class, class 3, should contain a maximum of 25 percent moisture.
Should you buy a lot of wood, a moisture meter can be a useful tool.
