red gum firewood2M.V.S specialise in harvesting red gum (Eucalyptus camaldulensis). Trees are harvested in line with state forestry regulations.

Wood Description: River red gum is the most widespread member of the eucalypt family in Australia. Heartwood is red to reddish-brown. Sapwood to 40mm wide and is distinct by its pale colour. Texture relatively fine and even. Grain usually interlocked and often wavy, producing an attractive ripple or ‘fiddleback’ pattern. Gum veins are common.

Wood Density:  Density is the amount of space a mass of firewood occupies, the denser the wood the less space a given mass takes up, or the greater a particular volume of firewood weighs. For example sugar gum weighs approximately 1070kg, while a cubic metre of pine weighs only about 512kg. River red gum is approximately 915 kg/m3. The figures quoted are air-dry density. Ref: State of Victoria (2004) 'Properties of Firewood', Table 1. Timber properties of Victorian firewood species, (AG1150), PP. 2.

Burning Properties: Available heat is a measure of the heat given off when wood is burnt and is measured in kilojoules per gram of wood. River red gum relative heat available/unit volume is 81% which compares favourably with blue gum 83% and sugar gum 95%
