It is possible to make kindling out of all kinds of tree species but the general rule is that the sticks have to be dry and relatively small in order to effectively start a fire that will catch on to the bigger logs or other denser wood fuel. People find that splints from hazel, elm, beech, hawthorn, ash, birch, spruce and pine trees are best to use, therefore they are so popular. We offer a selection of spruce, birch and pine tree kindling sticks. Pine kindling burns fast and hot, birch will produce a fierce fire, and spruce wood is a common and available burning material.

How do you get kindling?
In order to make kindling a kindling material is required, typically one can gather fallen wood branches and twigs, etc, and then store and dry them for later use. There are scraps and leftovers from wood chopping and sawing, and planing and generally other woodworking byproducts that are usable, but it may take a little while until you can gather all the necessary amounts for your needs. Not to mention if you were to split your splints it can take away your time and is not exactly the safest way to produce splints, this may result in injuries if you choose to manually split them.

How do you split firewood into kindling?
The traditional method of splitting firewood is manual and is the same process for splitting kindling. You find your preferred wood material, log or big branch etc, you then set it in place and chop it with an axe. When the log or whatever you use has been chopped to smaller pieces, you can switch to machete type wood splitters or use the same axe. Every time you split the wood pieces be careful as to not interfere with the axe’s swing, aim, chop and repeat, it is a skill and can be quite enjoyable when done properly. This is basically the same method we use in the industry to split wood logs in to bulk kindling wood, except without the manual one-person labour, instead our kindling machines, which are set to be precise and are powerful, can take on a much larger quantity of kindling wood, maintain better speed and accuracy, and generally is a much safer method than individual kindle splitting. This allows us to produce a fine quality kindling in bulk, neatly packed for your convenience and ensures long shelf life, as well as our products, are protected from excess moisture.
