One of the best firewood options available today is redgum. As firewood, redgum burns hotter for longer thanks to its dense and compact nature, and is excellent for stoking slow, gentle fires that are perfect for lounging about.
How do you make logs burn slower?
Build fires using the top-down method to slow down a fire right from the start. Burn wood that is between the recommended 15% and 20% moisture content for firewood rather than really dry wood. Try to use hardwood logs in your fire instead of using softwood logs as they can burn for longer periods of time.
How far is too far to transport firewood?
As a very general rule of thumb, 50 miles is too far, and 10 miles or less is best. Visit our Firewood map to help you figure out how far is too far in your area. In many states there are rules, regulations, and quarantines that clearly state how far is too far.
How do you take wood camping?
Only buy firewood within 50 miles of your camping destination, and ask if they know where their wood comes from. Use Firewood Scout to find a local vendor where available. Purchase certified, heat-treated firewood if local wood is not available. Model responsible practices and encourage others to do the same.
