If you have not given much thought to being stranded in the forest without the tools for survival, here are some interesting uses for living off the land…..
Pine resin or pitch is the secretion from pine trees caused by cuts in the tree trunk or from broken limbs. The trees secrete the resin to seal up any cuts or damage to the tree. If you find yourself lost or stranded in a wilderness environment one of the best-case scenarios is that there are pine trees in the area. Pine resin exposed to the air will harden/crystallize but it can be softened for use by heating.
