Jotul Rangely anyone?

Postby Slack Tide » Mon Sep 30, 2013 5:45 am

Does anyone own this wood stove?
OR
Has anyone rebuilt a Jotul Firelight 600....I love the stove, but I think it's done and I'm debating replacement parts vs replacing the stove.

I would highly recommend a Vermont Castings soapstone. Best woodstoves out there, in my opinion.

Blaze kings are supposed to be good for extremely long burn times, but they're expensive and the one in my apartment sucks ass, so your mileage may vary somewhat.

No but you do need a permit to haul wood from one county to the next (bugs)

Lots of states around here restrict transporting firewood because of the Emerald Ash Borer.

Sure, the pile of states under the bridge would be so high, we wouldn't get hurt.

Well you see it all started a long time ago when I was a boy....we used to bring wood from my Pappies farm down to the ranchero....and then..... :hi:

In titz defense. There isnt a ash tree left in this region from the ash borer.

Then all the ash borers should have starved and will no longer be a problem.

There's a lot of doom and gloom prophesying that goes on around here about the EAB.

I think it's just a story you Michiganders have cooked up. It takes up some column inches whenever things get slow, but good hell that beetle is taking its sweet time.

On an aside, Michigander did not get a red squiggly line under it when I typed it. :lol3:

Yeah, humans introducing a non-native species that destroys native habitat. Classic nature.

Just like when nature filled the Great Lakes with gobies and zebra mussels. She's a real character.

I don't believe that wood transport restrictions are going to solve the problem, or that it's even fixable at all but I can't look at a situation where all the Ash trees have been killed and say "looks like old Mother Earth pulled a fast one on those beetles, what are you gonna eat now suckers?!?"
It's all true, as far as I know.

That's like voting for a 100% income tax and whispering to your buddy as you drop your ballot into the box "jokes on them, if I give them all my money they won't be able to take anymore!"

Assa is kinda half right. The EAB is exotic and very destructive, but nature will surely deal with it. Perhaps not on the timetable we like, but it will happen. There's plenty of ash in Michigan's soil seed bank, the areas that were hit the hardest will be the first areas to recover. Ash are pretty resilient trees, and fairly opportunistic, and they grow quickly.

Just to give you an idea. I bought my property in December 2010. Spring of 2011 all my ash trees were alive. By fall I had lost 3. This year not a single one was alive. There are 6 more in my thicket that I didnt take pics of but here is the remains of whats left. 5 more are not pictured that I took down and had the stumps ground out. I even have a maple thats showing the same signs.
