Wet wood lighting


How do you light wet wood?

Use a sharp knife/hatchet to strip away as much bark and wet wood as possible. If you can use a hatchet to split larger pieces of wood into kindling, this will expose the drier inner layers. Start a small fire using the stripped kindling. Use the small fire to heat and dry the larger pieces.
