- Estimates are presented for the distribution and quantity of recent (1978-1979) use of residential firewood in the United States, based on a correlation of survey data from 64 New England counties. The available survey data from other states are in agreement with the relationship derived from New England; no constraints due to wood supply are apparent. This relationship indicates that the highest density of wood usage (Kg/ha) occurs in urban areas; thus exacerbation of urban air quality problems is a matter of some concern. The data presentation used here gives an upper limit to this density of firewood usage which will allow realistic estimates of air quality impact to be made.
