2010 Dry Wood Campaign 


Rotorua has the worst air quality in the North Island caused mainly by domestic fires. Fires that are made using wet or green wood create more air pollution.

Firewood can take 6-12 months to dry so get your wood early. Stack your wood properly to ensure that air can flow through the pile to dry the wood. Also make sure your wood is off the ground and covered to protect it from the elements.
