Wood heating could spark economic opportunities in Wisconsin
The early fall is the best time of year to do some planning for winter and keeping homes warm. Wisconsin's early economy was built on the region's plentiful timber. The region still has great timber reserves that are increasing because of reduced manufacturing of paper and wood products in the state. A report for the Midwest region estimates that 153 jobs would be created for every 100,000 tons of wood pellets produced — and 100,000 tons of wood pellets would be enough to heat approximately 13,000 homes.
