We've compiled the greatest survival uses of Pine Trees into this special series of Seven ways to survive with Pine Trees. To learn the tasty truth, check out the video below.
If you don't mind the taste of turpentine (if you don't know what turpentine tastes like, chew a tiny bit of pine sap; it's an enlightening experience) the pine tree can be an even more excellent survival tool than it already was.

This is an excellent survival tip worth adding to your stockpile of information.
