In survival situations in winter, one may think that they would be hard pressed to forage anything to eat. Well guess what...there are some tree barks that are edible. Pull or cut off a piece of bark, and the edible part is the soft layer between the hard outer bark and the wood core. You can dry the bark near a fire and make a flour to make a flat bread. The bark can also be boiled and eaten. Of course its not a five star meal, but it could save your life.

Pine,Spruce,Sweet Birch,Slippery Elm these are just a few. Also, sugar maple trees can be tapped in winter and the sap eaten...it has beneficial nutrients.

Also, in the winter you can dig up roots and thaw or cook them over a fire...such as of course the dandelion root.

Again, it is vital that you know how to indentify things that grow in the wild before you eat them, as some can be fatal and look nearly the same as the beneficial plants.

I am still studying and will post more info later...

I wanted to say, it is a good idea in the fall to mark plants that you know have edible roots so that when they are covered in snow, you know where to find them!

Maybe start some sort of reference guide with pictures, or just links to certain websites that contain the preferable information.
