Wood Burning and Carbon Footprint
You hear a lot about carbon footprint these days, meaning how much carbon a given activity adds or subtracts from the atmosphere. The effect of burning wood is close to neutral with regards to carbon.
As they grow, trees remove carbon from the atmosphere. That carbon is released into the atmosphere when we burn a log. But trees are a renewable resource. The trees growing to replace the tree we burned will reclaim the carbon from the air.
Burning in a fireplace is a rapid form of oxidation. Rotting on a forest floor is also oxidation, just slower.
Because oil and gas are used to harvest the wood, the carbon footprint isn’t entirely neutral, but it’s pretty small.
