SAS 037 – Edible Plants

Not all parts of the trees are edible. The outer bark is inedible, but the thin inner bark of certain trees can be eaten in Spring, when sap has started to flow. Peel back bark near bottom of tree or form exposed roots to reveal inner layer. Can be eaten raw, but boiling will reduce to gelatinous mass which can be roasted and ground for use as flour.
Some of the poisonous trees contain irritant or poisonous substances. Yew, cedar, Horse Chestnut and buckeye, Laurnum, Black locust, California Laurel, Moosewood, Hickory are some poisonous trees.
