August 23. 7pm. Activities center. Understanding the science of firewood. Emma Hanson (Wood Energy Coordinator with the Vermont Dept. of Forests, Parks & Recreation): We all know that not all trees are created equal when it comes to firewood, but do you know why? What is the history of a cord, and are all cords created equal? This presentation will focus on answering these questions and much more, helping to develop a much deeper understanding of the wood that fills your woodshed.
