Oneida Tribe’s Waste Wood Warms Elders

Dan Brooks, Tribal Forester, discusses how the Oneida Tribe is using wood for warmth. The Oneida Tribe has nearly 5,000 acres of rural forest land. They seperate out valuable hardwoods and use them in home heating systems for their elders during the winter. Additionally, they are working to develop alternative uses for their waste wood, such as converting it to pellets to be used in other energy systems.
