Nelson City Council in partnership with Tasman District Council and Good Wood suppliers are offering a limited number of firewood discounts to Nelson residents who buy their wood in November and December, ahead of next year’s winter rush.

Nelson and Tasman residents are eligible for a $25 discount off the price of one load of firewood per household (minimum load size 3m3 to qualify).

The promotion runs until fully allocated.

Good Wood suppliers are committed to supply either:

  • Dry, seasoned firewood, suitable for immediate use and can be stored away immediately. This is wood that has a moisture content of less than 25% dry weight.


  • Green (unseasoned) firewood delivered sufficiently far in advance of winter so that, if properly stored by the user, the wood will be seasoned for use for the following winter. You will need to allow this wood to season (dry) properly before storing away.

When discussing your firewood requirements with your Good Wood supplier make it clear whether you are happy to receive green wood to dry over summer, or if you prefer seasoned wood that you are planning to store away immediately.
