We use a splitter to split the fire wood, which sometimes produces pieces that are not neat as some pieces are “torn ” apart. The pieces are chunky (not too big though and will still fit a standard fire place)
* Please make special mention in notes, if you do not wish to have these pieces mixed into your load.*
These pieces do burn longer though as they are cut from harder, knottier portions.
Please note that you may get some pieces of Gum from our milling machine.This is definitely not treated wood and is normal Gum timber ,its just the by-product.It will have straight edges compared to the ‘normal” looking firewood but that’s just due to it being cut and not split.Its all dry and in fact packs neater in a bag and therefore the bag will get more volume in and be heavier.If you would not like this, please stipulate it in your order.
Each load consists of 10 bags hardwood and 10 bags Pine. The hardwood bags consist of a maximum 20 pieces(this can vary as pieces are not all the same size)
We use the same size bags as the hardwood is delivered in but due to Pine wood generally been split a bit thicker there might be less than 20 pieces in each bag
This load is a mixture of soft and hardwoods and is the quickest way for you to get your fireplace up to operating temperature with less hassle.
Once it’s going, you can throw the hardwood on for a slower burn…
When ordering Hardwood from Hout Bay Firewood you may get a mix of hardwood varieties such as:
- Beefwood (Casarena,some say it’s the best firewood in the World)
If you specifically would only like only Gum, please mention this in the notes section of your order.
We are confident that our wood is of good quality and that it will keep you warm this Winter.
