How To Survive On Pine Tree Bark

Of course, you’re probably not going to sit down to a meal of pine tree. But in a worst-case scenario, a pine tree could save your life.

Pine Cones have pine nuts inside of them and the needles can be used in a tea.  

But, if you shave the outer protective bark off a side of the tree and get down to the white under layer, you can literally eat it straight from the tree.  It's slightly sweet with a turpentine flavor (not a typical favorite flavor profile).

If you dry out the white meat, it's easier to eat.

The bark has a lot of antioxidants and carbohydrates so it can give you a good boost of energy.

So if you ever find yourself in a desperate situation, you now have a option.
