$29.50 plus tax (Refund Policy)


During the winter of 1979-80, households in the five largest cities of Kansas burned an amount of fuelwood equal to 2.7 percent of the state's net annual growth. A survey of 2,374 households revealed that nearly 31 percent burned wood and used an average of 1.34 cords per year per household. Most of the wood was used for both heating and recreation. Wood burning, the amount of wood used, and the amount paid correlated positively with income and education. Residents of the sampled cities spent an equivalent of $6 million for fuelwood during the season.
