Is it wrong to steal birch bark?

No.2169706 ViewReplyOriginalReport
My buddy was born in and has lived in the South his whole life, but whenever he drives up to Wisconsin to visit family, he always take a few extra hours round trip to a local public forest and strips 2-3 mature birch trees. Is this wrong? He always does it responsibly and only takes the top layer, and only mature trees only, and never wastes it. He says he just can't help himself and that there's no good equivalent Southern tree that works so good as a firestarter.

Is this wrong, from an ethics standpoint? Would a Northerner kill my buddy if they caught him doing this?

Pic related, some of his harvest.

Which one of these fuckers do I get? It'll go in my STHF bag most likely, so I'd like it to be able to do lots but also last.

Transportation problem

Hi /out/

Moving to a town of 80k people and the nearest wilderness is about a 30 minute drive.
Not bad.
However I have a nice truck and don't want to leave it parked where someone can mess with it when I go out.
I won't even be leaving any valuables in there I just really don't want to leave my truck parked at the WMA (wildlife management area).
I plan on spending a lot of time there this upcoming fall and winter camping, backpacking, hunting, fishing, etc. and doing plenty of overnight trips.
I have been thinking about getting pic related to ride out to the WMA and then hide it and cover it where no one can mess with it. It will just be from my apartment to the WMA.
What should I do and what are my alternatives vs driving the truck out there and leaving it parked right next to the road where anyone can break it or mess with it or steal it.

The man was more /out/ than me and always will be. Now I know to move out west so my children won't ever have this fear. Washington state, here I come.
