If you have pine trees in the land you own then you can start off immediately. If this is not the case, you will be required to acquire state office’s permit for cutting down a pine tree to extract pine bark.
Take your cutting tools to the place where pine tree is located. After breaking apart the outer bark, you will need to chop at the surface as hard as possible. Make sure you keep the blade at a safe distance to avoid hurting yourself.
Wear safety gloves and start tearing at the damaged outer bark of the tree. Apply force to separate it from the pine tree and this will allow you to reach the veiled inner bark. Use a hatchet to reach the surface of the inner bark. Dig about 1 inch deep to make sure you are able to extract the pine bark comfortably.
The surface of the inner bark can be further exposed by using the blade of the hatchet. However, protect your fingers while performing this task.
Put the pine bark you have extracted into a large basket or bucket. Pine Bark is typically prepared through grilling and broiling processes.
