Re: Fire wood

Like Broon said. THe prices also vary according to wood type. Beech ( Buchs) is most expensive and burns best for heat, then comes Ash (Esche), also fine in my opinion, and cheapest would be Pine / Fir (Tannenholz) of some sort, which gives out less heat, and dirties your chimney faster. You could pay as low as CHF 100 for that, although my prices are 2 years out of date.
Delivery costs also. Sometimes you can find a retiree who tends a piece of forest to keep busy, and he might be offering wood for less than the going price. You can also ask if there are "tops" of trees available. Various branches cut to one of the aforementioned lengths , which also burn fine but are messier, because they probably hold more dirt from laying on the ground for a while. THey are also cheaper.

Good luck with that. I miss burning wood. It was one of my favorite activities.
