The weather is most definitely hotting up and kiwis up and down the country are planning their summer breaks in anticipation of a summer of relative freedom after the last few months of lockdowns. Carlos Ter Huurne, owner of Ignition Firewood, a Drury-based firewood supplier is also looking forward to a break, but says it’s never too early to stock up on next winter’s wood over these summer months over the summer and he is offering great specials to all those that do.
“We offer amazing specials when you buy wood in summer from Ignition. We offer dry wood all year round, but in the summer, we can offer green wood that will dry out in time for winter 2022 at prices that are better than our already competitive rates. Because it doesn’t need to be kilned dried and dries perfectly in your shed or garage over summer, our costs are lower and we can pass on that saving to you.
People something think that we don’t have a lot of stock over summer but we always have a full range of both soft and hard woods ready for you to store in time for next winter.”
Ignition Firewood has a range of different quality woods available year round and kiln dried, shed stored woods ready for delivery now. There are soft woods like Pine available from $45 a half cube, hard woods like gum and Tee tree but the most common wood sold is the Hotmix firewood.
“Hotmix is a combination of hard, slow burning wood such as gum and soft fast burning wood such as pine. It may also contain oak, macrocarpa, poplar, tea tree and black wattle. It is popular as it provides both fast starting and long burning firewood.”
There’s nothing like the aroma of freshly split firewood in your shed, whether it’s the resinous tang of pine or cypress or the more spicy scents of some of the less common timbers. Rather like the smell of new mown hay freshly stacked in the barn, it gives a reassuring feeling of being prepared for winter and Ignition Firewood can make that happen for you today! They make deliveries all over Auckland six days a week and ordering is simple - they’re only a phone call away on 0800 WOOD NOW (0800 9663 669) and all trucks have mobile EFTPOS for ease of payment.
