Those of us who burn wood know we have just about reached the end of the season and we are scrambling to find one or two more pieces of firewood for those still chilly nights. But for Northfield’s Ray Morvan, of Green Mountain Heritage Inc., this is not the end but almost the start of the firewood
Harry Watt’s Profitable Firewood Processing Workshop is on the road!
This year’s event takes place at the William F. Rice Jr. Extension Center in Voorheesville, NY on May 7th. NFA Director Scott Salveson will be speaking along with a host of other firewood professionals.

We do a lot of talking about the moisture content (MC) of firewood, and for good reason -- but do you know the actual moisture content of the wood you're selling -- or burning?

We learned recently of a 21 year-old STIHL user who was severely injured after she was pinned to the ground by the tree she was working on. Her father performed CPR for almost an hour until paramedics were able to get into the woods. Thankfully, after several days in the hospital, she is doing fine and is expected to fully recover – thanks in part to her decision to wear the proper protective apparel. Her forestry helmet (partially glued back together only for visual purposes) helped to distribute and absorb some of the impact and limit potential head trauma. We share this story because we care about you. Please, always wear the proper protective gear when you are operating outdoor power equipment as recommended in your instruction manual.
