For centuries, wood was used as domestic and industrial fuel. But now it has been replaced by coal and other fuels like LPG.

However, burning of wood gives a lot of smoke which is very harmful for human beings. It causes respiratory problem. Also, trees provide us with useful substances which are lost when wood is used as fuel. Moreover cutting of trees leads to deforestation which is quite harmful to the environment. LPG is better domestic fuel than wood as it does not produce smoke and un-burnt carbon particle, which causes respiratory problems.
