Olive Wood Barrow Bag X1

One Olive Wood Barrow Bag

Our olive wood barrow bags are about the size of a domestic wheelie bin and are stuffed full of beautiful seasoned olive wood. The bags are a minimum of 46cm x 46cm and are about 87cm tall. Olive wood is a great fuel to mix in with a well-lit hot fire, or great on its own in your multi-fuel stove, wood burner, or open fire. It is a must-try wood!  Each barrow bag contains 9 individual bags of Olive Wood.  

Requiring less storage space than the larger 1m3 and 1.2m3 bulk bags these barrow bags are NOT delivered on a pallet and even have a tie down lid.

Barrow bags are an easy way to try out olive wood for your stove or fireplace, BBQ, or Pizza Oven! The flavour from burning olive wood is amazing - the unique sweet smell of burning it is like nothing else. We hope you like it as much as we do.


Why use seasoned logs?

Freshly-chopped wood has between 40-60% moisture content depending on the species. When burning wet or green wood the majority of the energy released is wasted evaporating the water in the wood rather than heating your house. Wet wood produces more smoke than seasoned wood and can leave harmful creosote deposits on your chimney or flue pipe. Creosote is formed when wood smoke condenses and attaches itself to the lining of a chimney before it exits the top of pipe. You should get your chimney swept regularly, twice a year, to remove excess creosote deposits.

What is seasoning?

Seasoning is the process of reducing the natural moisture content in wood, resulting in less smoke and a more uniform combustion when used as firewood. Seasoning is the traditional method for drying wood and can take between 6-9 months. The logs are stacked on a raised foundation in a clean, cool, dry and shady area. Air flow through the stack is the key to removing moisture through evaporation.

Where does your Olive Wood come from?

We source all of our olive wood from the Mediterranean. Olive farmers chop down the old olive trees as their productivity declines, leaving the productive roots to produce plentiful new growth or planting new trees to replace those that have died or become unproductive. Each year thousands of olive trees are left to decompose naturally releasing their stored carbon dioxide back into the atmosphere. Utilising these old trees as a source of fuel has a carbon-neutral effect on the environment.
