Those of us with allergies and respiratory problems that share fences with many of you wood burners are greatly appreciative of the occasional relief from the toxic clouds of wood smoke that regularly blanket our neighborhoods.
C'mon wood burners,upgrade your old heavy particulate-smoke belching units with EPA certified 0 emission units readily available today.
Pellet stoves or natural gas units will function beautifully w/o subjecting your neighbors to your toxic emissions.
