At Manna Gum, it is no secret that we love firewood. A study of the greenhouse gas emissions of firewood was carried out by the CSIRO in 2003 for the Australian Greenhouse Office. The report from this study Life Cycle Assessment of Greenhouse Gas Emissions from domestic wood heating shows that firewood can release less carbon dioxide than all other sources of heat energy. In 2011 this study was updated to include the non-CO2 greenhouse gases, methane and carbon monoxide. This updated study found that the inclusion of these gases made little difference to the original findings. Pick up a trailer load, a car boot load or order a truck load. It's the best way to heat your home. For firewood supplies and firewood storage ideas click here.
