Tips for burning wood

It is that wood burning time of year once again.  If you're going to make a fire there are a few important things that can be done to reduce pollutants.  First, burn dry, well seasoned wood only.  Secondly, if possible use an EPA certified wood burning stove.  They can be up to 70 more efficient than older models. Lastly, don't let your fire smolder.  Monitor the flue so that it burns as hot and clean as possible.

More information available at the Environmental Protection Agency's website, Burn Wise.
