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
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/Coriscan Pine Mix $110
These two woods compliment each other well, with the higher density Larch mixed with the softer coriscan pine they will suitable to burn in most closed logburners. The mix is not suitable for open fires and the resin content in the Larch does make it spit alot. A good a round mix.
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.
Macrocarpa (not available as yet)
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
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.
