It’s easy and fun to predict the weather with the Woodsman’s Weather Stick


Everyone loves to check the weather with the Woodsman’s Weather Stick. Great entertainment for all ages making the Weatherstick the perfect gift idea for everybody.

Made from the branches of the Balsam Fir Trees, the Maine Weather Stick duplicates a natural phenomenon which, it is said, the Abenaki Indians were among the first to notice. The branches of the Balsam Fir would curl down when bad weather approached and would bend up when the skies cleared.

So how does the weather stick work?

That’s actually a pretty good question. There have been many studies done on how it works and the best we can tell is it comes down to the way the Balsam Fir reacts to relative humidity.

Getting a little more technical, the cells on the bottom side of the branch form slightly different from the cells on the top side of the branch due to the tree’s natural growth patterns. The cells on the bottom of the branch tend to be more in compression from supporting the weight of the branches. When the relative humidity rises (which typically happens right before a rainstorm), the compression cells tend to react differently than the normal cells. That is what causes the Weather Stick to bend up and down.

What else can we tell you?

It is a fun way to predict the weather and spend time with family and friends. It is a sustainable product and 100% recyclable (can be used as kindling in an emergency)  This is a product of the USA and is farmed and packaged in Maine. Thanks for your support!
