How to tap a pine tree to collect pine tree sap | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Pine tree sap can be tapped and used to make paint and resin products. It makes a great water-proof sealant for buckets and tarps and can be used as an adhesive. Pine tree sap can also be used as stove fuel and it can be boiled and mixed with ash or sand and compressed to make concrete. Fortunately, tapping a pine tree for its sap causes no permanent damage to the tree. Here is how to tap a pine tree for its sap. http://wildernessarena.com/supplies/misc-supplies/how-to-tap-a-pine-tree-for-pine-tree-sap

How to make glue in the wild (pine pitch glue)

How to make glue in the wild (pine pitch glue) | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
Glue can be used to repair tents, tarps, and to form tools (e.g. fletching on an arrow). It can be used as a sealant for containers (or canoes) or to waterproof coverings. And of course, if you cannot scavenge glue, you must make it yourself. Pine pitch glue can be easily made producing a adhesive material that is strong, flexible, and fast setting. http://wildernessarena.com/skills/general-repair/how-to-make-pine-pitch-glue
