Which Firewood Burns Cleanest

umbra.gifAfter our article a couple weeks ago on True Fuel's new renewable, eco-friendly firewood made from sawdust, we were intrigued to read Grist's Ask Umbra column on "Which Wood to Burn."

In response to a reader's question re: how to reduce smoke and pollutants coming from chimney's and woodburning stoves:

The short answer is: buy a dense wood, buy it split or split it yourself, and give it six months to a year to dry. Mayhap what you see in one chimney vs. another is smoldering, or wet wood, or variation caused by weather and stove type. What you want is a hot, efficient fire followed by well banked coals.
