Test your firewood with a moisture meter — available to borrow, free, at the Library!

Every Vermonter knows that burning wet wood is a waste of money and energy. Wood burns most efficiently when the moisture content is between 15- 20%. Green wood can have a moisture content of over 50%.

Dry wood burns hotter, more efficiently, and produces less smoke then wet wood.

A moisture meter is the most reliable way to determine which wood in your wood pile is ready to burn.

Ask your librarian about borrowing a moisture meter to check your wood pile, and visit https://www.epa.gov/burnwise/learn-you-burn-wood-what-you-can-do for additional BurnWise tips.
