Firewood for Heating
Our most popular and cost-effective firewood. Gum (Eucalyptus) provides slow burning heat, ideal for log burners and open fires.
Our Eucalyptus varies from Southern Mahogany to Blue Gum and Black-butt. Eucalyptus is highly regarded as firewood remaining dense and heavy when dry.
Auckland Firewood acquires Gum logs that are not suitable for milling, largely sourced from rural shelterbelts or woodlots.
Arborist Mix $21
With its combination of split dry firewood and slow burning logs, the Arborist Mix has become a favourite with many of our regular customers.
The Arborist Mix is bagged on a base of She-oak (Casuarina) and/or Wattle (Acacia), with added hardwoods and semi-hardwoods selected from permitted tree works across Auckland.
Ideally suited to open fires, this low/non-spit hardwood and semi-hardwood mix is an alternative to Ti-tree.
It is important to note that no single bag of firewood can be guaranteed not to contain a piece or pieces of firewood that spit.
An easy-to-light mix of semi-hardwoods split down to a small, convenient size for quick ignition!
Sized in between kindling and split firewood logs, Boom-sticks are a popular option with customers who have some difficulty lighting their fire.
Totara $20 - SOLD OUT
Totara burns ferociously and produces a generous flame. As firewood, it’s a favourite of New Zealand bushmen and farmers who value its quick ignition and rapid heating properties.
We have a very limited supply of Totara, sourced from permitted Auckland tree works.
($9.50 with Ak Firewood kindling bag)
Premium dry kindling, naturally split from Totora clears.
A special kindling product sourced sustainably, perfect for lighting any fire; sold in a standard supermarket bag ($9 if supermarket bag is provided).
Ezilite Fire Starters $5
Non toxic, compressed wood product

Firewood for Cooking
Ti-tree or Tea-tree is the sentimental favourite and most trusted firewood among New Zealanders.
Our Ti-tree is mix of Manuka (Leptospermum scoparium) and Kanuka (Kunzea ericoides), sourced from permitted tree work – and dried for a minimum period of eighteen months!
Slow-growing Manuka and Kanuka burns extremely hot and is often used for cooking in pizza ovens, barbeques, braai and hangi, or for smoking.
Fruit Wood $25
Pear, Apple and Plum, our fruitwood stocks will vary according to availability. Most fruitwoods are lighter woods and used for flavour, rather than for heat.
Renowned for their aromatic qualities, fruitwoods are suited to smoking most cuts of meat – particularly for long-smoking beef, pork, chicken or fish.
Pohutukawa is very popular with the firewood connoisseur, adding an authentic kiwi flavour to wood ovens, barbeques and smoking.
Our Pohutukawa has been sourced from consented tree removals and pruning work – and seasoned for over two years!
Our densest and hottest-burning firewood, Puriri is most suited to the barbeque and braai.
We have a very limited stock of Puriri that is often only available in summer.
American White Oak $12
Imported kiln dried machined wood in a red mesh onion bag - woodworking offcuts.
The most commonly used firewood by American Pit-masters. Significantly superior for slow cooking than NZ grown Oak.
All our firewood is sold in 48cm x 78cm hessian sacks.
