Please note that the Gum firewood which we have at the moment is not totally dry. It’s not green timber but rain wet.The weather this past month has been really wet.The trees we cutting now are dead stands of trees so are exposed to the weather. This is not the same as green timber as it’s only surface water and will burn off. This does mean it will take a bit of love to get the fire going but once the water is burn off it will burn.We will be supplying an extra bag of free kindling in order to help with this  This only applies to the Gum firewood and not the Pine,Gum mill offcuts,Rooikraans or Kameeldoring(Namibian hardwood).

The de Beer family arrived in Hout Bay in 1922(Johaness de Wit de Beer).It was on this family farm(Bethel Farm which grew veggies and had a dairy), in 1994,that Kurt De Beer started supplying firewood to Hout Bay.The wood supplied then was all from Bethel Farm.In 2004,Bethel farm was sold to be developed and is now Avignon estate.Hout Bay firewood now operates from opposite Avignon esate(which was originally part of Bethel Farm).The wood we now supply comes from various suppliers.Portion is bought in but we do receive alot from KDB Treefelling cc,which is our tree felling division and is therefore from the Urban forests in and around the Southern Suburbs.

With times changing and being the Cyber Revolution, Hout Bay firewood started its online store in 2018.The online store allows you view all the woods types and quantities we offer.You book your preferred option and your delivery day and time all online.You can pay online, via Payfast or select the cash option.Is is a user friendly system but if you have a problem please send us a mail(internet systems do have issues).If the online system “isn’t your thing”then please either send a whatts app or mail.PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FREE GOODIES OFFERED WITH YOUR ORDER ARE ONLY VALID IF YOU BOOK YOUR ORDER ON THE ONLINE SYSTEM(UNFORTUNETLY WE NO LONGER OFFER THE ROUNDS AS WE HAVE NO MORE IN STCK,YOU WILL STILL RECEIVE THE KINDLING AND BLTZ).If you mail/whattsapp/phone your order through, you unfortunately wont receive them.

Most of our deliveries are done by Frankie.He has been our main delivery man for 3 years now.You will know him by his big smile :).During Peak season, when deliveries are busy,we do get help from KDB Treefelling cc’s drivers.All are Hout Bay locals and been employed for a few years at least.

.Our wood isn’t fumigated and it’s natural that it might pick up a few passengers along the way.If you are concerned then it’s advised you store the wood on a concrete surface or similar.

Hout Bay Firewood can not be held responsible for any damage(to people or property)these bugs/beetles etc  might potentially do.
