You want a hot fire that will last. So you have a tough choice to make: The log cabin campfire lasts longer, but the tepee tends to burn hotter—most bonfires are born of tepees. If you have lots of wood, you can make an extremely hot, albeit quick-burning fire by digging a shallow hole (no more than six inches deep) in which to lay your firewood. Figure out which way the wind is blowing, then dig a short tunnel into the hole at the most windward corner—the wind will blow into the tunnel and up into the base of your fire.
This is time-consuming, dirty, annoying work, but it’s also just what you have to expect for not using a campsite with a ready firepit. Once you’re done clearing your firepit, make a circle of rocks in the center—not around the perimeter. This inner circle is where you will be setting fire to things, and the outer circle of bare earth will prevent the fire from spreading. Some people like to use a hubcap or metal trash can lid upon which to build their campfire in the wild, but you have to wonder why anybody would want to haul a hubcap around through the woods.
You will make the tree sick, or kill it. Remember the words of the scary apple trees in The Wizard of Oz and how deeply they impressed you as a kid: How would you like it if somebody picked things off of you? If that logic doesn’t deter you, the other major drawback of branches ripped off of living trees is that they don’t catch fire as easily as branches that have been dead for a while. The same logic that applies to seasoned versus green firewood applies in the great outdoors: Anything you rip off a tree definitely counts as “green” and will have a lot of water in it, so don’t use it unless you want to be huddling over a smoky pile of unlit branches in your firepit come nightfall.
