Each load consists of 20 bags of wood.Wood sizes do vary so sometimes you would get more and if the pieces are big then maybe a bit less.
Hardwood/Gum is the most common wood used for indoor fireplaces.
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.
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.
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)
We are confident that our wood is of good quality and that it will keep you warm this Winter.
If you prefer Gum only please make sure that you stipulate this on your order
