What Others Are Saying

  • “To just have an all-out ban on all wood burning is a knee-jerk reaction that would have many negative consequences.”

    Mark McMillan Sr., lifelong resident of Salt Lake County

  • “Once our insert is up to temperature, all you see are heat waves coming out of our chimney pipe. These new stoves burn wood much more efficiently and use much less wood. They are constructed to use radiant heat more efficiently, and burn gasses that might not otherwise get burned. All this translates into far less particulate emissions.

    With today’s new technologies in wood-burning stoves and fireplace inserts, burning wood need not be eliminated.”

    Teresa Clawson – Salt Lake City

  • “A full ban would punish those who have invested thousands of dollars upgrading their wood stoves to EPA-compliant models that burn more cleanly”
