Is it safe to place a wood stove on a laminate floor?

I want a wood stove and have laminate flooring.

That would be terribly dangerous. Laminate floor burns very well, putting aside the fact that it would warp due to the heat. You can put down a brick pad(using morter) twice the footprint of the stove on the laminate floor to avoid any danger or damage to your home.

Stove clearance advice the minimum safe distance between a wood stove and surrounding walls and floors. Don't place a wood stove in the basement,because it will lose heat and immediately ruin the Laminate Floor..

You will need to take precautions and not place the stove directly onto the laminate; create some kind of stage or step with concrete or bricks.
