Fatwood is an all natural fire starter that is harvested from the stump of a pine tree. Over time the naturally occurring resin accumulates within the stump and gives Fatwood its excellent fire starting capability. Harvested using sustainable forestry practices and wood only from non-endangered species, Wood Products International's Fatwood Firestarter is environmentally friendly. No live trees are cut to make this product. It is a safe and easy way to start any fire.
