Temperatures are dropping and thermostats are 
going up! As heating bills start to rise, more 
people are looking into heating their homes with 
wood. Heating with wood can save you money while 
helping the local economy. It also has enormous 
environmental benefits over oil and other fossil 
fuels, including lower transportation needs and 
reduced environmental impact of extraction, and 
it leads to better management of our forests and 
results in near zero net carbon emissions. The 
key to making the most of this precious resource 
is proper harvesting and employing best burn 
practices so that emissions are kept at a 
minimum, efficiencies are as high as possible, 
and it can be sustainably harvested for generations to come.

If you now heat with firewood or pellets, or if 
you’re interested in changing over to this 
renewable energy source, this seminar is for you. 
Come learn about buying and drying firewood, best 
burn practices, proper maintenance of wood 
stoves, and an overview of the latest high-efficiency technology now available.
