The Northern Forest Center, a New England-based forestry advocacy group, recently released a study that analyzed the greenhouse gas (GHG) emission impacts of heating buildings with state-of-the-art wood pellet boilers. The results found a number of environmental benefits to using wood pellets for heating. For example, analysis showed wood pellet fuel reduces GHG emissions by more than half compared to fossil fuels—54 percent compared to oil and 59 percent compared to natural gas.
