Bluegum

It’s great wood! Why?

Bluegum as a dry fuel is easier to light and as effective in heat provision and burn time efficiency than either Redgum or Mallee Root timber.

Firewood Solutions Bluegum is more affordable, ready to light, provides excellent heat and burn rate. It is plantation grown, carbon neutral, sustainable and a more environmentally conscious choice than harvesting wood from native forests.

Where does it come from?

Firewood Solutions Bluegum timber has been harvested from South Australian land owners that planted this crop in the 1980’s under a government scheme to provide timber for pulp milling purposes. This scheme was abandoned and the timber was never harvested for this purpose. However, now this resource is ideal for use as firewood.
