Firewood Splitting

Wood splitting can be a time-consuming process.

Take the hassle out of cutting and splitting firewood, where we size and split on-site to suit your fireplace size.

Log splitting is an exhausting exercise, especially if you do not have modern tools and are splitting wood on the chopping block.

Additionally, if you don’t use the proper technique or the right tools, safety glasses, and comfortable splitting axe handle, injuries can occur with each swing of the axe’s weight on the chopping block. We can turn a tree removal into your family’s yearly firewood with large professional chainsaws and an excellent, powerful wood splitter that makes fast work of any project.

Partnering with us to split wood or adding split firewood onto our services on your property won’t drastically add to our time on-site, where our expertise and motivation to provide speedy service will have us splitting logs with ease and promptness. Our wood splitting price is based on per cubic metre of split wood created, including clean up and transportation time to your wood shed, usually ranging from $80 per cubic metre split.

Splitting VS Full Logs

Comparing split firewood to full logs is important when building a fire. We hope to familiarise customers with the nuances between the wood styles, helping you select the right type for your needs. Splitting firewood encourages faster drying, removing moisture to aid in the wood combustion process as only half of the wood pieces are covered by bark which retains water.

Additionally, splitting wood makes it easier to light and produces more heat. Whole logs burn for longer than split firewood, so it’s up to you which type to choose. Our team offers split wood and full logs for local clients, turning your trees on the property into a full firewood supply of seasoned wood.

Softwood and Hardwood

While softwood is the leading lumbar form, hardwood performs better than firewood. We understand the species of trees found in the Bay of Plenty, recognising how the density of hardwoods allows for longer burning. If you contact us to get your wood split, you can enjoy the warmth for longer and have to go through your wood stores more slowly.

Homegrown Firewood

Whether after planting trees for homegrown firewood  or making the most of an overgrown tree, we will be happy to help with your stores. As trees grow old, tire structurally, and are at risk of property damage, tree felling is usually the best course of action.

We always seek to bring your tree back to health, but if you require tree removal, we can make the most of the process by getting the wood split for your property.
