I have a small wood stove for my tent. My bunk is close enough so I can reach it to put in more wood if needed without getting out of the sack. Wood heat is warm and safe. Like everyone has told you, don't run a gas heater all night. 

That's my tent on the left with the stove pipe  :campfire:

Fell asleep mid day once with a buddy heater on in a tent... woke up dizzy and confused... turned it off and crashed all night to wake up with a headache.  No more.  I'd even have a CO detector with a fireburner...I have one in my little cabin (tighter than a tent) and if I pull off the stovepipe from my barrel stove when packing before shoveling out remaining few coals its amazing how fast that alarm goes off.  "Open the door!"

I don't run any stove at night no matter what the temp.  A proper weight  bag, insulated pad  and quality cot make a very comfortable night if you are dry.  Usually we have a wood stove for our hunt in Alaska.  Next year we are going to be a ways above treeline and wood will be a premium.  Actually working on a design for a vented propane heater for a fly in hunt.  So far we have a prototype producing nearly 40,000 BTU at full throttle.  Going to be doing some tests this winter with my 12 man tipi.

I have a wood burning stove in my tent.  It will burn out after 30-45 minutes because it is small to be backpackable.

At what point should one be concerned about falling asleep with a wood burner in a tent?  It has a stovepipe.

I don’t know but I have a wood burning stove in a 1950’s Rollohome  30 ft trailer.
I never felt that great about that either. Just guessing it would burn down pretty quickly if something went wrong.

Never run a gas stove when you are sleeping. We camp every winter with Boy Scouts in a leantoo with no heat We put down straw and a tarp over top, then a sleeping pad and a good bag. To keep them warm we use the big self adhesive body warmers. In thirty years we have never had a scout freeze out.

Thank you all for the advice and warnings! I bought a mr.Heater portable buddy and plan to use it combined with a bushbox style wood burner. I have a really warm sleepingbag and there is no way I'm going to keep either of the heat sources on while sleeping.

Thanks again

To be clear, wood “heat” isn’t necessarily safe. Anything burning can generate co2 or other toxins. The way you’re doing it seems fairly safe but we never know who’s reading so I hope you don’t mind I elaborated

I have used them while bathing, or dressing but never ever while sleeping.  Just not worth the risk.
