I have a woodstove in my basement which I use to burn trash and wood I have pruned and let dry. I usually burn it during the winter when I wash clothes and hang them on the clothes line.
The stove comes in handy during power outages and floods.

I'm not sure but some of those may be banned here.

Many have been. I have an old Shrader which was one of the first efficient stoves made. Laws are really tight all over and have to be efficient now. If we have a long power outage I have propane for my main floor. Got it when a flood soaked all my wood and I needed to dry the basement.

It seems some types are so common they can’t be banned, but when few have them, it’s almost inevitable,

Stoves have come a long ways. I got mine used. My mother wanted to.put in in the fireplace but it was way too big to be safe so it sat on the porch. I eventually moved and put it in the basement just in time for a flood. It is mainly a trash burner on laundry day but it got me through the big windstorm before the flood when I went 10 days without power in December. I slept in the basement on an old couch the whole time. My power lines were down and stupid power co didn't know there were houses on my street. I got on my bike and told them.

Good for you!  When they saw you pedaling toward them, they had to act.
