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.

    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.

    I am using a stove for the first time this year - harman accentra insert. It is heating my 2500 sq ft house by itself. I bought one ton of the green team pellets from lowes and so far (about 15-20 bags in) I am not impressed. Lowes did store these in their garden section which is not covered. The pallet was wrapped but after reading comments here I am assuming some extra moisture got into the bags. They are producing soo much ash I need to clean the burn pot every other day. I have to scrape off black ash embedded at the bas of the burn pot each week as well or the stove will not lite the next time around. I am trying many other bags (platinum fire, cleanfire, and LG granules) and all of those have burned much better.

    Best pellets I ever burned, no clinkers , low ash n burns very hot!!!
    I was burning hamer's hot one's but would get clinker all the time no matter what setting I had it on. No clinker here with GT!!! Hamer's had alot of fines too theres none with these. And for the money you can't go wrong. Got them at Lowes hard to come by but love them this is my one an only pellets I'll burn from now on. I have a Whitfield Quest n my stove is working like a champ wit GT.

    I just bought a new USA Stove model 5500m and these pellets fill up the burn pot completely and when you turn off the stove the last few in there just smoulder. I clean the stove every day as I did with my old stove, but never had this problem. I have checked with USA Stove and they tried to ajust my stove to compensate the bad burn. Only thing we acn figure out is there is alot of glue in these pellets from a furniture maker, which makes them burn this way, this makes it not a clean burn will never buy them again, have two tons I can't use so I'm out $400.00

    I love green team, this is my first year with my stove and am very impressed with the quality,heat and the ash. no clinkers. they seem to burn to a fine ash, I've tried a few others but only one compares, and they were more expensive, lowes had these a monthg ago for 197.00 a ton but whenb i called to get another after trying these out and liking them , they jacked the price to 274.50 WOW!! so long green team, going back to energex for 239.0 unless i can find green team somewhere else for less or comparable, just to much of a jump, not greean teams fault I hope, Id like to think it is lowes trying to cash in.

    One of the best pellet brands I have ever used. I have a somewhat older stove (less sophisticated) Lenox Traditions T300P from 2004. It needs a superior pellet to run properly. Greene Team makes it run beautifully.
