Fresh from the Woods -- Jan. 27, 2015

In our latest Fresh from the Woods feature we look at home heating with wood. Though not nearly as common as it once was, wood heat, whether in the form of stick firewood or pellets, has enjoyed something of a resurgence in the past few years, thanks to high oil prices. What will happen now? No one knows. But it's unlikely Mainers will abandon wood entirely. To see the story on our website, click here. To go to the email announcement click here.
