Outer barks as a tinder


Outer barks are a great resource for fire lighting and provide us with another tool in our bushcraft repertoire.  In this video I talk about using a few outer barks as a tinder, including birch, cherry, hornbeam, honeysuckle and clematis.  I’ve written about using outer barks as tinder in this post previously, take a look at it in conjunction with this video.

In the video I mention using a couple of those outer barks in a tinder bundle, so take a look at this post to see how to make a tinder bundle.

We teach outer barks as a tinders on our 2 Day & 5 Day Bushcraft Courses, the IOL Bushcraft Competency Course and also our 2 Day & 5 Day Survival Courses.  You can see plenty of photos from all of these courses on our Facebook page.
