Macrocarpa 2m3
& Split Pine 2m3

Fully Seasoned, requires 2-3 weeks airing from delivery


Macrocarpa is a medium-density firewood with good heat output and reasonably long burn time. Not suited to open fires as Macrocarpa has a tendency to spark.

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.

Good to know:

Take your time to identify the two different wood types. Macrocarpa will hold more weight, smell fragrant and ends will look smoother. Split Pine will look rough on ends.

Start the fire with Split Pine and then mix burn for a great heat output. Macrocarpa will provide almost double burn time than Split Pine.

When stacking your firewood, make sure Split Pine has plenty of air circulation. 

Macrocarpa creates a little more chips/scrappy pieces than other wood types. This is due to its natural composition. 

Ash should be cleaned from firebox every 3-5 weeks. Once cool – most fruit trees love it as mulch.

Make sure your firebox and flue are cleaned and inspected each year for your firewood to work efficiently.

ORDER NOTE: Ordering two loads (8m3) of a combo like this one is often more expensive than ordering 4m3 of each of the two single wood types.
