Greene Team (Green Team) wood pellet fuel pellets

Greene Team Pellet Fuel Company, LLC was founded with the goal of producing clean, renewable energy and reducing dependence on fossil fuels. The location of the production facility is in Greene County, Pennsylvania at the site of the old Robena Mine. The Robena Mine was built in the years of WWII, and was the largest, most modern coal mine of its time. In the wave of the renewable energy era, Greene Team has converted Robena from fossil fuel mining to renewable bio fuel production

Pellet quality is our number one goal at Greene Team. We receive fresh sawdust daily from local sawmills and process it into wood pellet fuel quickly. The sawdust never has had a chance to degrade prior to pelletization. This ensures the highest BTU value possible. Our state of the art facility allows us to produce the highest quality pellet fuel consistently. We have an in house lab and test finished product every ½ hour to maintain quality control. All pellets are screened 3 times prior to bagging to eliminate fines in the bag.

  • Bulk Density (lbs/cubic foot): 40 - 46
  • Diameter (inches): 0.250 to 0.285
  • Fines % (at the mill gate): < 0.5
  • Inorganic Ash %: 0 - 1
  • Length (% greater than 1.5 inches): < 1
  • Moisture %: <= 8
  • BTUs: > 8000

  • Admin Review: August - 2017 - Looking forward to burning some this year!! I always thought these were great pellets.
    Sept - 2017 - Well I have had a few cold nights with these and as usual they are a great pellets. Robbie down there in PA keeps me updated on the shipments headed to Lowes and such for purchase. He mailed me out a bag this year and I loved burning them! A great hardwood pellet! I like how dense they are and the sound they make when hitting the hopper. Thanks Robbie! Also, these were the first pellets I ever bought for my first stove back 8 years or so now! Great then and great now.

    green team platinums, this is my first year burning this brand. so far not a bad one to burn, I had to up my feed rate to get these to give the heat that i want, i have found very few fines in them too, no clinkers and a clean burn too, I think tha every one should try different brands too, do not be come hooked on one brandthat keeps getting higer in cost every year.
    i have a quadrafire insert and i clean it every 6 days if it needs it or not, in stoves you get what you pay for.
    i have burnig this unit for 3 years

    Note there is no Green Team - but there is Greene Team and Green Supremes. Not made by same company. The Greene Team I tested so far this year has produced good heat and low ash. Definitely a premium pellet but the cost was also higher at the big box store than other brands. My stove is a 25PDVC burning 24x7.

    I tried 3 bags of these pellets in my Harmen XXV, and I was not happy they burn very dirty, lots of ash and carbon build up. My glass and heating coils were very black. I also tried the other green team, the burned cleaner, still produced large amount of carbon. You get what you pay for?

    Englander pdvc 25 stove,
    I bought a few bags of green team hardwood a few days ago, this years batch does put out better heat than last year, hardly any dust, there is a big improvement from last year, only complaint I have is it is more sooty than last year, glass blackens quickly.

    Our first winter with our new harman accentra insert and I must say I really doubted it would heat our 1900 sq ft home... but it does!!! We bought Green Team Pellets from Lowes and found it burns quick and heats up fast too. But I find it does produce ALOT of ash and the glass gets very dirty fast. I would buy again though. Infact, hoping Lowes still has some in stock as they are starting to run out for the season.

    We have a Harmen Acentra and for the past 6 years we have tried many brands of pellets and the Green Team is by far the best. Low ash, clean burning, lights fast and a very hot fire. Now that Lowes has closed in out area I hope I can find a place to buy them in the fall.

    This is my first year using a pellet stove, englander 25 pdvc.
    I decided to try a few brands before I bought major tonnage. I will list the box store brands since they were the cheapest in my area and the easiest to get.

    Lowes- Green team- the worst burn time, 8 deg lower temp. low flame and heat compared to the other brands small pellets andseem to fall appart to crums. Very sooty, and 3x more ash than the other brands, lots of clinkers ,Not impressed at all other than price $4.07 a bag or $ 389 a ton.

    Natures own- moderate heat, good burn time. Lots of ash and soot, a few clinkers. Small pellets, lots of dust. 4.19 a bag. $389.00 a ton

    Wal-mart- natures heat by Pennington- real good heat, nice flame, larger pellets few smalls. soot is on the low side, ash not bad,
    Theses pellets are a dark red color. They put out a strange smell outside similar to burning cow crap other than that they are good pellets. $5 a bag no discount on tonage.

    Home depot- stove chow.
    This was the only brand my home depot carried this year.
    Very high heat on low setting. Nice size pellets, Long burn times per bag. Spoon full of ash in a 24 hr period, little sooty but does not darken my glass like the others. Not a clinker at all yet. This was the winner for my stove.
    The price was higher than lowes but as hot as stove chow burns I wilill make that $ back in efficiency . 4.90 a bag or $209 a ton.

    All stoves like different pellets you just gotta find what your stove likes. And the way I'm hearing pellet batches change from year to year so it's a good idea to sample different brands to see what's burns better.

    I have got to say that Green Team Wood Pellets are by far the best woodpellets out there.I live in Coos county New Hampshire and after trying 6 kinds of pellets that these are the best burning and by far burn hotter than any other pellet I have tried.I have only had my 1500 squft Englander pellet stove for this season.I got them at lowes but after calling the last 6 stores in a 100mile area of me they have none and say they are not getting anymore this season.To bad now I am using fireside pellets from homedepot that are not as hot burning as the Green Team pellet.I would put green team pellets at a 12 for a rating of 1 to 10. One being the worse and 10 the best. The fireside ultra from Home depot are about a 8.

    Best pellet i've ever burned. i have a 5 year old Breckwell vermonter, and it can burn anything, but the high heat and low fines of this brand is the best.
