Here I come to save the day

*From Game Documents* Wood - Wood is produced by woodcutters. Wood is used for contructiong buildings and for production of bows, maces and tools. Wood is also used for heating houses during the winter (November to February) months. 1 wood can provide heat for 250 people. If there is not enough wood for heating, some people will freeze.

How is the fact that, for Vikings, 100 people burn 1 wood a bonus, when normally it is 250 people burn one wood?

Or am I missing something?

I wonder the same thing. Also turks have 150 and not 250 (which I think is standard for all civs)

I remember Amen and others used to do wood vikings, with major success. It's a very effective economical solution, especially with the 1:1 conversion. I recommend you still make your own food as well as sell it. 100 food and 100 wood rls minimum.
