***Update in post #28 and #29 pictures.. More pictures of processed wood soon.
Went out with my daughter for a hike and found an area with pine trees. I found several dozen dead trees that are still standing and several that are blown over where the roots are out of the ground. I figured give it a shot and started kicking and poking around. After several dozen attempts finally found a small dead limb on a standing tree that looked to be fatwood. Split it up and tried it out. Fatwood in Hawaii! Awesome!
I found that the three trees that I tried on the ground had none but the dead still standing trees have it.
Didn't find a skeleton tree or stump but the dead branches have it.
Just wanted to share my very first Wild Fatwood find..
My daughter picked up some giant cones too!
A close up look... 2" diameter.
A look compared to these cones! The cones are about 6" diameter!
