Birch bark as a tinder

Using birch bark as a tinder is a great way to light your fire with natural materials.  In this video I show 2 different ways to collect birch bark, one from a live tree and then from a dead tree.

We teach collecting and using birch bark as a tinder on our 2 Day & 5 Day Bushcraft Courses as well as the IOL Bushcraft Competency Course.

You can see plenty of photos from all of these courses on our Facebook page.
