For those who are interested, here you will find the mathematical and scientific meanings of the cosmic blueprint called the "Tree of Life" (Hebrew: Otz Chiim) revealed for the first time ever and its amazing equivalence to the sacred geometries of other religions:
I will admit, the parable of the Fig Tree was the inspiration.
The Lapps removed the brown outer layer and hung the strips of white inner bark under the eaves of their barns to dry. If food was plentiful the next winter, this bark was fed to their dogs and cattle, and was reported to be very fattening, but if other foods were scarce, the Lapps would grind this dried bark and make a famine bread of it, which was very nutritious, but, to Linnaeus's taste, not very palatable.
It is not usually realized how much the American Indians formerly depended on tree barks for food. The eastern Indians favored the barks from the pine family, especially that from the white pine, although the inner barks of other trees, such as black birch and slippery elm, were relished. www.ruralvermont.com...
Pine needles contain 5 times the vitamin C found in lemons..Think of it as a herbal tea. A handful of pine needles, or 1/4 cup fresh chopped needles steeped in boiling water for 10 to 15 minutes provide 100% of the U.S.R.D.A. of vitamin C. Pine soup (or tea) tastes like the pine forest smells..Certain Indian tribes used to peel young shoots of pine and use them as a green vegetable..Don't make the mistake of trying to eat the dead outer layer of the pine tree bark. It is the moist white living inner bark (cambrium layer) we are after. The cambrium is located just underneath the dead outer layer and it is here where the tree`s girth growth occurs. The best way to get a supply is to peel off some large chunks of bark, being careful not to girdle the tree lest you destroy it, the carefully fillet the moist layer of cambrium clinging to the inside of that. isurvivalskills.blogspot.com...
Yet, all parts of the rose, and especially the hips, are storehouses of Vitamin C and other important nutrients.
Compare the nutritional content of oranges to rose hips and you will find that rose hips contain 25 percent more iron, 20 to 40 percent more Vitamin C (depending upon variety), 25 times the Vitamin A, and 28 percent more calcium.
In addition, rose hips are a rich source of bioflavanoids, pectin, Vitamin E, selenium, manganese, and the B-complex vitamins. Rose hips also contain trace amounts of magnesium, potassium, sulfur and silicon.corditecountryshownotes.wordpress.com...

lol! have you starting saving or planting seeds from what you eat yet? I've heard after a few generations natural purety returns, one of my fav subjects as well all the way to essential oils, inspired a few years back and still growing-
Trees have many benefits and one of the most overlooked is its sap. Sap serves the tree as blood does the human body..Sweetgum has been used by Native Americans as a balm. Some cultures mix tobacco and sweet gum to help people sleep.. Sweetgum is made into a salve and sold under names like Copalm Blasam and Liquid Storax. It is used to treat skin cancer, diarrhea, ringworm and other conditions. www.centraltexastreecare.com...
According to drugs.com, pharmaceutical companies use gum arabic as an emulsifier or binder in drugs, and it can also inhibit growth of periodontic bacteria..
Willow bark is used to ease pain and reduce inflammation. There is good evidence that it does just that. Researchers believe that the chemical salicin, found in willow bark, is responsible for these effects. However, studies have identified several other components of willow bark that have antioxidant, fever-reducing, antiseptic, and immune-boosting properties. Some studies have shown willow is as effective as aspirin for reducing pain and inflammation (but not fever), and at a much lower dose.. Menstrual cramps, Flu www.umm.edu...
Seeds of the plant cannabis sativa, hemp seed, contain all the essential amino acids and essential fatty acids necessary to maintain healthy human life. No other single plant source has the essential amino acids in such an easily digestible form, nor has the essential fatty acids in as perfect a ratio to meet human nutritional needs..Hemp is not unique in having all the essential amino acids in its embryonic seed. Flax seeds also contain all the essential amino acids as do many other seeds in the plant kingdom. What is unique about hemp seed protein is that 65% of it is globulin edistin. That is the highest in the plant kingdom. www.ratical.org...

I'd advise against planting in wild areas. You could be introducing diseases and non-native species, which could cause further problems for the trees in that area,
