The Northern Forest Center has supported the installation of almost a dozen pellet boilers in all four states of the Northern Forest this year. Automated wood heat efficiently uses local and regional wood pellets that are delivered right to your house or building in convenient bulk delivery.
A recent study commissioned by the Center found that Northern Forest homeowners and organizations cut greenhouse gas emissions by 60% compared with other fossil fuels when they switch to wood pellet heat sourced from the region’s forests. Heating with local wood pellets supports the local economy, strengthens forest landowners’ ability to keep forests as forests, and cuts greenhouse gas emissions. We have supported the installation of 142 pellet boiler across the region. Together, the projects generate 2.6 million for the Northern Forest economy. Learn more about our wood heat program.
