Our Sugar Gum burns more efficiently than Red Gum¹ , supports local reforestation projects and is grown less than 2 hours drive from the Melbourne CBD. Pre-cut and split ready for your wood heater or oven.
We are proud to have teamed up with the fantastic people at Wood4Good who work to create beautiful and productive forests on existing degraded farmland. These forests become a robust ecosystem that in turn plays an important role in the regulation and protection of land, water biodiversity and the climate. The work of Wood4Good helps to create permanent forests that provide a fantastic local source of renewable material, bioenergy and income.
On top of this, a 2003 life-cycle assessment from CSIRO has shown that locally sourced firewood from managed plantations causes more carbon to be stored than is released through burning, so you can sleep easy (and warm).²
² In 2003 the CSIRO conducted a life-cycle assessment of greenhouse gas emissions from domestic wood heating. This assessment compared emissions of greenhouse gas pollution from a range of energy sources including coal and gas and rated plantation-grown firewood the best option. In fact, energy sourced from suitable plantations is better than carbon-neutral, because plantations remove carbon from the atmosphere, and the firewood that is produced reduces our consumption of dirty energy sources.
