What are wood pellets?
Simply put, wood pellets are made by combining leftover chips and sawdust from various types of hard wood lumber. The leftover bits of lumber are first transferred to chippers and hammer mills where they are refined to a consistent size. From there, they are dried and pressed through dies at high pressure to form pellets. These pellets are great alternatives to traditional heat sources in that they’re all natural and affordable.
