GBGB 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. Gray Bearded Green Beret shavings are 100% natural, processed in Georgia, and are very rich in resin.
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.
WARNING: The combustion of wood, charcoal and other fuels can expose you to chemicals including carbon monoxide and soot, which are known to the state of California to cause cancer and birth defects or reproductive harm. For more information go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov
