Bark Up or Down? Firewood Splits Norwegians

Posted

New York Times, Feb 21, 2013

OSLO — The TV program, on the topic of firewood, consisted mostly of people in parkas chatting and chopping in the woods and then eight hours of a fire burning in a fireplace. Yet no sooner had it begun, on prime time on Friday night, than the angry responses came pouring in. In a country where 1.2 million households have fireplaces or wood stoves, the subject naturally lends itself to television. “We received about 60 text messages from people complaining about the stacking in the program,” said Lars Mytting, whose best-selling book “Solid Wood: All About Chopping, Drying and Stacking Wood — and the Soul of Wood-Burning” inspired the broadcast. “Fifty percent complained that the bark was facing up, and the rest complained that the bark was facing down.” KEEP READING >>

Have a look at this list -- in the near future you'll likely see most parks with similar restrictions. While this may be a pain in the rear for campers, it also means there may be an opportunity for a local firewood producer to get a nice contract supplying bundles.

STIHL

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.

"THERMAL SHOCK" This demonstration clearly shows why you should never allow the fire in your fireplace raise above the damper. This is a common consequence of abusing your fireplace by burning wrapping paper. Big Thank you to Jerry I and the laws of Physics for this demonstration during spring training.
