Firewood Direct

We are situated in the Akatarawa Valley, which is part of the Tararua forest park, 11 km from the start of the road in Upper Hutt.

We produce all our split firewood on site. This gives us complete quality control of our product, NO excuses.

We source our logs from as far away as Taranaki and northern Hawksbay.

We have been producing firewood since 2004 when we were doing bulk commercial wood and supplying other merchants . We switched to retail sales in 2006 and have been supplying delivered split firewood to our retail customers since that time.

Our business is based on delivering you the maximum amount of service for the money you spend. Firewood Direct, The Firewood SERVICE.
