SUGAR GUM HARVESTING

sugar gum firewoodM.V.S specialise in harvesting Sugar Gum (Eucalyptus cladocalyx) trees. Trees are harvested in line with state forestry regulations.

Wood Description: Heartwood is pale yellow-brown, with fine uniform texture, grain commonly interlocked, hard and heavy.

Wood Density: Density is the amount of space a mass of firwood 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 weights approxiamtely 1070jkg, while a cubic metre of pine weighs only about 512kg. 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. Sugar gum relative heat available/unit volume is 95% which compares favourably with blue gum 83% and river red gum 81%.
