    Not enough context. Explain what you mean.

    Re: Collective Noun

    My first thought was "a bundle of sticks"; but as Anglika says, that might not always be appropriate. (A "heap of sticks" suggests a rudimentary unlit fire, for instance.)

    When looking for such words, you can always try a google in this format:

    "a * of XYZ"

    where XYZ = the item in question.

    Thus "a * of sticks" gives you these examples.
