Collecting firewood is one of humankind’s oldest activities. We all enjoy the beauty and warmth of a wood fire, and they remain a popular source of heating and cooking in many parts of the world, but many firewood users are unaware of the ecological price of collecting dead trees and fallen logs. It is now recognised that the removal of this wood is contributing to a significant loss of wildlife habitat in many areas and regions of the world – we are particularly concerned [about sustainability] in Southeast Queensland.
For this reason, the Australian Federal Government brought in the National Certification Scheme for firewood merchants. To become a Certified Environmental Firewood Supplier the merchant must agree to abide by a national voluntary code of practice that is designed to promote the sustainable use of firewood by ensuring merchants obtain wood from sources that do not threaten the conservation of flora and fauna in forest and woodland ecosystems.
PR Firewood have always endeavoured to follow this code of practice since starting our business in 1999.
All timber products sold by PR Firewood are sourced either from the Queensland State Forest (under license), certified environmental tree plantations and/or supply chains so you can be sure that any firewood you purchase from PR Firewood has been collected legally and according to sustainable management principles to protect the environment.
Timber used for our bags of firewood is Australia's predominate hardwood timber used as firewood for heating or cooking. Ironbark is more dense than most other eucalypt species and definitely better that all other species offered as firewood including redgum. Timber used for our firewood has been dead for a minimum of 10 years and in most cases more than 20 years before harvesting.
