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 >>

Firewood burning tip #1 the most important, and requires action NOW!!! Buy your firewood for next season ASAP! Split firewood purchased now and properly stored over the summer will be simple to light, give you much more heat, and reduce smoke by up to 90% next fall. Really a great investment for next fall! You will be so glad you did!
