Ecoblaze wood pellets are made locally in Cumberland, MD at Eby Sawmill.
Why do Ecoblaze pellets burn so hot and clean?
Ecoblaze wood pellets are made from the sawdust that comes from sawing trees into lumber. The sawmill debarks the tree first before it is cut into lumber. The sawdust is blown into a storage building until it is made into pellets. The wood fiber is kept clean and is free from bark which makes for a top-quality pellet.
Are Ecoblaze wood pellets hardwood pellets?
Yes, Eby Sawmill only cuts hardwood trees into lumber. The pellets are made from the sawdust from the hardwood trees.
Do I need a special stove to burn wood pellets?
Wood pellets are burnt in wood pellet stoves. They are not used in regular wood stoves.
Can I have them delivered to my house?
Yes, we use a delivery truck that has a forklift on the back to deliver the wood pellets. We use the forklift to unload the pallets and place them where it is convenient for our customers.
Can I store them outside?
The Ecoblaze wood pellets are covered and wrapped well enough that they can sit outside as long as the skid cover is not cut open or torn. However, we recommend storing them under a tarp on under roof to prevent any loss due to moisture.
Is there anything in the pellet that makes it stay together?
The natural lignin in the wood fiber holds the pellet together. High pressure and temperature combined makes the wood fiber stay together in the form of a pellet.
