Why You Need Quality Firewood This Winter
To create a strong fire that warms your entire home, you need good quality firewood. The poor quality stuff is too damp, too small, and will give you nothing but smoke and ash. At Manna Gum Building And Garden Supplies we’ve got your Olinda firewood sorted. Excellent quality yellow box and premium redgum firewood, sustainably sourced from local Victorian farmers, and transported to our yard in Olinda.
Yellow box firewood.
Yellow box is a premium grade dense firewood that burns strongly in both open fires and combustion heaters.
Beautifully-scented redgum provides a hotter heat, but with a lower flame, when compared to standard firewood, keeping your home warmer for longer. It releases less smoke, and less ash, meaning quicker, easier cleanup.

Why Is Redgum Firewood So Popular?
Redgum firewood provides a lower flame with higher heat which means it smokes less than other woods and lasts longer. Since it burns hotter without high flames it is perfect for indoor open fireplaces as it doesn't leave very much ash to clean up, reducing your work load. It also has a nice scent to it when it burns so again for an inside wood it is lovely.
How Much Firewood Do I Actually Need?
This depends on the size of the space you want to heat. But we typically recommend buying between 3 and 9 cubic metres of firewood to see you through winter.
For example, a small open fireplace in a typical Olinda lounge room will burn around 1 cubic meter of firewood a month. If you keep that fire going 24 hours a day you’ll need around 2 cubic meters.
If you use wood outside for a BBQ or fire pit too, then you’ll need more.
Firewood improves with age as long as it’s kept dry. So the more you buy now, the better your fire will be as winter goes on. But it’s best to get in early—you’ll be hard-pressed to find a quality firewood supply in the middle of winter.
Is It Worth Getting Delivery?
We deliver the firewood to your Olinda home in one of our trucks. Firewood is heavy and takes up a lot of room. To get a couple of cubic meters of firewood delivered to your home will save you an awful lot of work and protect your vehicle. If you have a Ute or big trailer though, feel free to come down to our site at 1170 Burwood Highway, Upper Ferntree Gully and pick up as much as you wish.
How To Store Your Olinda Firewood
Before you store your firewood, always make sure it’s dry. You don’t want any more than 25% moisture content, at a maximum. At Manna Gum all our wood is delivered to you under the 25% moisture threshold, dry and ready to burn.
Store your firewood at least 1.5 metres from the foundation of your home.
Keep it off the ground. Don’t stack your wood against a wooden building, or between trees. Keep your main firewood stack outside, and covered, but preferably able to be hit by sunlight. We recommend covering it with a tarpaulin. Only bring firewood inside that you need to burn for the next two days. When inside, store your firewood off the floor on a steel rack
DO NOT spray it with insecticide. This is flammable, and could flare up when you burn it.
Should I Buy Kindling?
Good kindling is crucial to setting your fire. It helps keep the fire’s energy going so that it warms, ignites, and burns the medium-sized wood, which in turn sets alight your larger pieces of wood. Skipping the kindling results in your fire not heating as fast, so it won’t burn your larger logs.
We recommend picking up 1-2 bags of kindling with every firewood order.
How to Set Your Kindling
1. Scrunch up some newspaper or fire lighters and put it in your fireplace
2. Place 3 handfuls of small twigs on top of that
3. Place several pieces of kindling over the top of the twigs
4. Add 1 or 2 smaller logs standing against kindling in a pyramid shape
You’ll be able to start your fire effortlessly, in just minutes. Every time.
What Does Quality Firewood Cost?
When it comes to the price of firewood, it depends on the quality of the wood, and its availability. Don’t waste your money on buying bags of firewood from the service station, or your local hardware store. You need to go for quality, and quantity.
At Manna Gum we only sell the highest grade firewood to Olinda residents. Perfectly dry, ready to use or store for later in the season.
