& Split Pine 2m3
Seasoned, Excellent Burning 2024
Gum is a hardwood. Slow burning, maximum heat output. Suited to both open fires and log burners. A softwood or kindling should be used to start your fire and a medium or soft wood should be used with gum once a good fire is established. Gum will absorb rain and this should be considered when purchasing during winter.
Split Pine is a softwood. It will generally burn faster than other woods. Good heat output. Good to start your fire. Split Pine may absorb the rain readily due to its soft nature, consider this characteristic when purchasing. Split Pine can be susceptible to mould that grows on the surface of the wood utilising sugars and other carbohydrates. It gives the wood a woolly or powdery appearance, but does not affect the firewood.
