Tone and Style[edit]

This article does not have a very "encyclopedic" feel for its tone, style, and content. I would suggest moderate editing for presentation purposes. 130.20.71.48 (talk) 00:36, 16 December 2008 (UTC)Sta7icMatt

Sections Needed on Air Pollution, Pollution Controls, and Catalytic/Non-catalytic Stoves[edit]

Wood stoves are potentially a major air pollution source in communities where they are widely used for home heating. Wood smoke pollutants include "particulates... sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide and potentially carcinogenic compounds including polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, benzene, formaldehyde and dioxins" (source: U.S. EPA). Much research has been conducted and lower-polluting stove designs have been developed. EPA tightened air emission standards for new stoves in the 1990's. Currently the article discusses none of this. Moreau1 (talk) 03:20, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

This article needs attention from an expert on the subject.[edit]

Someone should check this article for accuracy, I noticed an obvious error right away but am not familiar enough with the topic:
Freshly cut wood (known as green lumber) can have a moisture content greater between 30% and 200%
"Greater between" makes no sense, the reference given is an ask yahoo page, not exactly a reliable source, and it doesn't even mention the numbers 30 or 200. I feel this calls into question the trustworthiness of the whole article. DS Belgium (talk) 10:49, 10 September 2011 (UTC)

There are also inconsistencies; for instance under "Seasoning firewood" the first paragraph claims "Seasoning by air-drying the wood can take up to two years." yet in the second paragraph we see "Hardwood must be well-seasoned, with some species taking up to four years to dry out", yet "Softwood is left out to the elements for two winters, then for one summer to dry out with ventilation" (my emphasis). 213.122.225.6 (talk) 14:20, 20 November 2012 (UTC)
