EPA offers four simple steps to properly dry firewood before using in a wood-burning stove or fireplace.
Wet Wood is a Waste
EPA offers tips on how to properly use a moisture meter to test firewood before using in a wood-burning stove or fireplace.
In 2010, EPA conducted a video contest asking filmakers from across the country to submit their best short videos to explain the benefits of burning only dry, seasoned wood. The following are the first, second and third-place winners from the contest. Please credit EPA's Burn Wise Program and acknowledge the filmmaker when posting each video.
