at Town Meeting!
TEST YOUR WOOD WITH A MOISTURE METER!
Available to borrow from Vernon Free Library!
Wood burns most efficiently when the moisture is between 15-20%.
Green wood can have a moisture content of over 50%.
Dry wood burns hotter, more efficiently, and produces less smoke than wet wood.
A moisture meter is the most reliable way to determine which wood in your wood pile is ready to burn.
Ask at the library about borrowing a moisture meter to check your wood pile!
