What Sort Of Wood
Am I Getting?
We have two types of wood. Mixed hardwood and Redgum. Mixed Hardwood is great for large outdoor fires or if you want to keep the cost down a little. Our Redgum burns hotter and lasts longer making it the best choice for inside fires as it creates less work and produces more heat.
We cover our wood each night and in the case of heavy rain. This means you receive wood that is ready to burn. Sometimes, on the way to your home, we will have to drive through rain. But even if that happens the moisture of the wood will stay well below the cut-off of "Dry" wood, which up to 25% moisture. See the video below of a piece of Redgum that was left in the rain for nearly two hours.
Normally we will have your wood delivered the day you order. Depending on the time you order, it may be the following day. We can time orders to coincide with your movements at home.
Most suburban homes have a small to medium fireplace in the lounge room and sometimes an extra fireplace in a bedroom. These fireplaces will burn approximately 1 cubic meter of Redgum firewood per month each if used most days. Some families will burn less and some others may burn more if they like the fire going all the time.
