Wood stoves create no additional CO2 but their smoke contains particulate matter. Some of it is irritating to the respiratory system or even carcinogenic I hear.
The particles become airborne and remain so for a duration that is proportional to their size. Larger, heavier particles drop out sooner than the lighter species. Usually they attract water (as nucleating surfaces) and come down with rain, but other surfaces, especially oily surfaces will encourage them to stick.
