Survival Summit Fatwood Shavings
Fatwood is mainly found in dead pine tree limbs and stumps. Fatwood contains a high concentration of resin. Our Fatwood Shavings burn hotter and longer. They are also wind and moisture resistant. Our shavings are 100% natural and processed on the East Coast in Georgia.
Fatwood, also known as “fat lighter”, “lighter wood”, “rich lighter”, “pine knot”, “lighter knot”, is derived from the heartwood of pine trees. The stump that is left in the ground after a tree has fallen or has been cut is the primary source of fatwood, as the resin-impregnated heartwood becomes hard and rot-resistant over time after the death of the main tree. Other locations, such as the joints where limbs intersect the trunk, can also be harvested.
