sad news in Greece as they illegally chop down the forests to keep warm
Thanks for that link, horrifying reading though it is!
Another wake up call do you think, but will anyone hear it!!!!!
I like the use of rocket mass heaters.
On the timber front I like the thicker walled bamboo with a fair amount of length between the nodes.
Well it has so many uses and produces abundant amounts of combustible bio-mass quickly.
Why chop down valuable trees which tend to take a long time to grow?
Why not leave them in the landscape and grow and harvest bamboo for heating esp. when used in conjunction with a rocket mass heater.
I must admit that I am not really into technical thinking. People ask me a lot of questions about how to do this & that, especially when it comes to muzzle-loading guns. My main concern is that something works & works well, I am not concerned with ballistics & other technical aspects. As for firewood, we live in a forest, & we use whatever dead trees we find regardless of what they are.
The difference between soft woods & hard woods is not that simple, pine for instance is not necessarily a soft wood, & Yellow Box is not necessarily a hard wood, if you want to get technical. I hate getting technical.
