Who is Blue?

red fullsize


Blue is a hot headed, fiery little red headed fellow that is quick to light up and burns brightly – punching out some serious heat long into the night keeping homes warm!

Beware – don’t get him wet or he gets very grumpy!

Although he is a red-head – we call him Blue – as he is really blue – Bluegum that is!

Bluegum is one of the best timbers available for home and business fires. Traditionally overlooked for alternatives such as Redgum, Mallee Root or Sugargum.

As detailed in the table below – Firewood Solutions Bluegum compares favourably to the more in-demand Redgum because:

  • It has a better density than Redgum and produces more relative heat
  • Lights more easily and produces more flame for better ambiance
  • Is carbon neutral 
  • Is more affordable than Redgum
  • Is sourced from South Australia so you are buying local
  • Is plantation grown and sustainable, meaning you are not destroying native forests
  • Can be provided in bulka bags so it stays dry and its easy to store

So the question is – why wouldn’t you give our Bluegum a go this winter?
