    Your Harman will burn anything you put into it. TSC sells some good stuff at a much more reasonable price. I bought some MWP at TSC for $192 this past season.

    I am in Pittsfield. There is a lumber company that has Heartlands, but they were pricy - over $300 a ton.

    This past fall we went to the "Birkshires" and stayed in Pittsfield. We had a really good time; good restaurants, hotels and things to do. The downtown was very nice; didn't see many empty storefronts. I know maybe during the 70's, like a lot of cities, they had problems, but they have definitely turned the corner. From what I saw, people kept their yards and businesses up and looking good. We plan on going back there this summer.

    I think GE had a big huge plant there and employed many people. I'm pretty sure it closed quite a few years ago. When that happened I'm sure it created many financial problems, for the people and the city.

    When GE was here, Pittsfield was the place to be. Since it left, Pittsfield as gone downhill. However there are still a lot of nice parts of Pittsfield. And ofcourse the Berkshires is a popular tourist spot Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow, Chesterwood, Norman Rockwell, Williamstown Theater festival, etc etc.

    Now if only if a good pellet dealer comes to the area ;)

    But the softies aren't much more and throw off a lot more heat.

    I heard softwood burns quicker, but the guy at woodpellets said that is not true. In fact, since Softwood burns hotter - the stove won't work as hard to obtain desired heat level.
