It’s fall in North America. It’s the time of year that marks the transition from summer into winter. It’s when the night time comes earlier and the weather cools considerably. It’s also the time of year when most of us start to turn on our heat or start to acquire firewood.
There are a lot of us that use firewood as a heat source. According to U.S. Census data 2.4 million homes across the country are heated by wood. This number does not include homes that use firewood as secondary heating or those of us that use it when we’re camping or even just to sit around in the yard. Whether or not you use wood to heat your home or build a campfire, firewood is used by millions of Americans.
