“The greatest advantage of a wood-burning fireplace is the scent and romance it can bring to any living room. Wood is also a renewable resource. If you are thinking green for the long-term, both in terms of nature and money, wood is the long-term way to go”
Tauriko Firewood does it’s very best to give evenly mixed loads, which include a range of sizes mixed throughout. The mix of species and size gives you what is needed to build a good fire. Customers often give positive feedback about the size variations and not needing to split too much with an axe. Some kindling is mixed in or it’s easily split from the smaller pieces.
When it comes to buying firewood, it is important to also have a mix of softwood and hardwood. You need the softwood to get a fire roaring and build a good bed of embers before adding the hardwood which burns hotter and longer but is difficult to ignite without the softwood.
