Firewood Needed to Keep Winter Chills at Bay
If you are looking for warmth and comfort in the cold winter months, look no further than the Bacchus Marsh Redgum and Garden Centre where supplies of split redgum are ample and readily available. Our customers want reliable supplies of firewood, especially for those early mornings when the frost crackles underfoot and the chill winds find their way through the tiniest crevice and into their homes.
Keeping the inside of the home warm on such days requires a handy supply of dry wood. To get the most effective heating capabilities, wood should be dried to 10% to 20% moisture content. While green wood will certainly burn, a large part of the energy generated from burning green wood is consumed in evaporating the moisture held in the wood. The best quality firewood is cut, split and stacked in a dry, well ventilated area for a few months before it is used.
Minimise Negative Environmental Effects
Does your conventional wood heater comply with Australian Standard AS4013? If it does, you can freely burn timber without feeling guilty about the environment. Dry wood is low in sulphur emissions and leaves little ash residue when burnt in a compliant wood heater. Dry wood is also easier to split and easier to ignite.
As a renewable energy source, plantation firewood is excellent because it re-grows readily with many species shooting quickly from the cut stumps. There is an argument to be made that burning plantation firewood is carbon neutral provided the timber is regrown, as the amount of carbon released into the atmosphere from burning the timber is neutralised by the same amount of CO2 being absorbed by the next growth of trees.
Plantation Timber a Renewable Resource
This is good news for anyone worried about the effect their wood heater is having on the environment. Everyone wants to be warm and comfortable during winter, and relaxing at home around a wood fire is one of the best ways to do that. It is not relaxing if you feel guilty every time you stoke it, so knowing that using plantation timber is environmentally responsible should see you well stocked with split redgum for the long winter ahead.
A hardwood like split redgum is much denser than soft wood and gives off more energy. The Bacchus Marsh and Redgum Garden Centre prefer split redgum for its desirable properties, and are waiting to take your order for your winter supply.
