About Wood Pellets

In a nutshell, wood pellets are a heating fuel made of compressed wood. Wood pellet mills use sawdust and wood chips from both hardwood and softwood byproducts to produce a carbon-neutral and efficient fuel.

Clean! So clean, in fact, that you can't even see the smoke coming out of a wood pellet heating system's vent.

Green! Pellet mills use wood byproducts that would otherwise go to waste.

Price-Stable! Wood pellets have been the most price-stable and affordable source of warmth for your home for the past ten years.

Local! They're produced right here in North America, creating local jobs and supporting local economies.
