WOOD TYPES

Our wood is sold at a per metre square rate. Prices and wood types are subject to change at any time.

Pine $95 (processing for 2021 now)

Plantation pine is great for open fires as it does not spark as much as other woods. It is a quick burning wood that will generate moderate to good heat. Pine is suitable for both open fires and log burners. Pine needs to be stored well and needs plenty of sunlight to prevent mould. It will absorb water easily after being dried so adaqate storage is recommended. It is a great fire starter.

Central Otago Pine/Old Man Pine $95 (Processing for 2021 now)

As a firewood, the older the tree, the better the burning properties, especially in trees 30 years and older. Old man pine trees 30 yrs + can contain a high content of resin / gum which is a flammable product. 

Our Central Otago pine has much the same qualities as you would find in an Old Man Pine due to the harsher growing conditions in our area compared to the faster growing coastal plantation pine. The majority of our pine is source from the Central Otago region when available.

Larch $110 (processing for 2021 now)

The higher density Larch is suitable to burn in most closed log burners. It lights easily and burns longer and hoter that the softer pine however mixes well with all woods.  It is not suitable for open fires and the resin content in the Larch does make it spit a lot. A good all round wood.

Oregon $120 (processing for 2021 now)

Oregon (Douglas fir) is very popular and burns hotter and longer than pine. It also dries very quickly and splits easily. It leaves very little ash and burns very clean. Oregon does spark a bit more than pine but can still be used in open fires. A great all round wood. One of our favourites

Macrocarpa  $130 (Out of stock)

This is a medium density wood, it produces a lovely clean heat but can spark in open fires.  Macrocarpa is a medium to longer burning wood.  It likes airflow to burn well - shutting your fire down can cause Macro to cease burning.  Smaller kindling sized wood is great for starting your fire.

Blue Gum $130 (Processing for 2021 now)

Blue gum or Eucalyptus is a very hot burning firewood. It sometimes takes longer to dry (up to 2 years) but burns very hot. It is often better to use blue gum in combination with other firewood to keep your fire burning well. Blue gum has the best heat output of all firewood.

West Coast Hot Mix $150 (Limited supply - processing for 2021 now)

We have secured some of the sort after Hot mix for this season. A mix of Kahikatea and Rimu, this mix burns really hot. Both woods are clean burning and dense due to the slow growing conditions. Has been logged with permission from private land.
