Why a piece of wood does not catch fire when a lighted mathstick is brought near it

Expert Answer:

Wood has a high ignition temperature. The heat produced by the single matchstick is not sufficient to burn the wood. Thus, a piece of wood does not catch fire when lightened match stick is brought near it.
