Ponderosa Pine & Douglas Fir Fire Starter Sticks

from 9.00

During forest walks around our diverse state of Oregon, when we're lucky during firewood cutting season, we –– meaning Papa Larry and myself (Jacq) –– find cured Ponderosa Pine tree trunks that are extremely flammable from tree sap. Some stumps are easily 100-200 years old which is told by counting their annual growth rings or by a quick glance given their giant size.

After a horizontal slice with a chainsaw, a few hours meticulously chopping small "pitch sticks" or "pitch pine" that are perfect for starting a fire at home or in the field, 6-7 sticks are bundled together as tree sap fire starter with white hemp string and some fresh Ponderosa sprigs.

These pine pitch firestarters are plenty of fuel to start an entire season of fires if used with discretion. DO NOT place this entire bundle in a fireplace or woodstove at once.
