When I was a child we used wood fuel in a city. Not just us but most of the people. Later on when I was around 16 we got central heating. Each year we bought the wood in the fall (quite an expense) and it was brought home on a horse cart. We stored it in the cellar. During winter it was my job to chop it and bring up about 10 -15 kg all the way to the third floor. My father was very clumsy and he was not good at it. I was very proud of doing it on my own from 11-12 years of age.

For rural areas it might be an alternative energy source. But for big cities , it is impossible. Can you imagine NY with wood fuel ?

Dont know about this, i might be wrong but, I think the world is too overpopulated to use wood fuel.
In a very short time all the wood wiould be depleted and the new growth would not be ready for harves yet.
Not even mentioning the dammage to the envirerment/forest land.
