The price of firewood in Germany rose 85% after relying on it for heating

The German Statistical Office, Destatis, reported that the prices of firewood and wood panels in Germany in August 2022 increased by 85.7% compared to the same month last year.


 “The prices of firewood and wood panels in August 2022 increased by 85.7% compared to the same month of the previous year, thus significantly exceeding the increase in consumer prices as a whole,” the statement said.


 "The reasons for the higher prices of firewood and wood than the average are represented by the increase in demand, and the increase in purchasing and transportation costs in the wood industry sector," the ministry explained.

 

 It is noteworthy that more citizens in Germany are turning to firewood as an alternative way to heat their homes amid rising gas, oil and electricity prices.
