The Tree of LifeTM cast iron gas stove has a beautiful three-sided fire-view that is inspired by the natural arches of interlocking trees and branches. Despite its size, the Tree of Life boasts an incredibly large 421 square inches of fire-viewing – which highlights the realistic wood-like fire from any angle in the room.The Tree of Life produces up to 31,000 BTUs, along with an exceptional turn-down ratio of 60-percent – for fantastic control over the amount of heat produced. The standard double doors can be positioned open (note the finely cast detail even on the inside of the door) or completely removed for unobstructed fire viewing. The advanced log design was specifically made with 180° viewing in mind. Each painstakingly hand-carved log can be enjoyed from any angle. The award-winning Ember-Fyre™ burner* presents the most realistic, wood-like fire found in any gas appliance. Unlike other gas appliances, the Ember-Fyre burner will produce an enjoyable fire with glowing embers even at it's lowest flame setting. Our patent pending self-balancing flue system is designed to produce the most beautiful flame with any approved vent configuration (top or rear termination) or under any atmospheric weather condition.
