Kameeldoring firewood has the lowest moisture content of any of our firewood and possibly any firewood in the world. It is baked by the African sun to between 0 to 1 % moisture content.(compare this to domestic air dried woods at around 30% and domestic kiln dried wood at around 18 - 20%!) The wood starts with ultra low moisture content due to the lack of water in it's habitat and the job is finished off by the unforgiving African sun!
Packed in clean, easy to handle 20kg (approximately) large polypropylene sacks.
Benefits of this ultra low moisture content, ultra dense, ultra beautiful African firewood include:
Amazing long burn times, virtually zero smoke production, no wasted energy burning off extra moisture and the very best return in calorific value terms that money can buy - the 20kg bag is roughly equivalent to 3 or 4 large nets of seasoned domestic firewood due to it's density, heat output and longevity!
The common name Camel Thorn is loosely translated from the Afrikaans name Kameeldoring, coming from kameelperd (giraffe). Early South African settlers gave the tree the moniker of Kameeldoring (giraffe thorn).
