During the past twenty years, the use of wood has become popular as an alternative to conventional home heating fuels. The report summarizes the current state of knowledge concerning chemical composition of wood smoke, emission rates from different wood burning devices, impacts from wood burning on airborne particle levels, and the human respiratory responses to inhaled wood smoke.
