Survival Water From A Tree


This is a pretty nice video from Rob at Sigma 3 Survival school that illustrates how to fairly easily get water from a tree. This could come in handy in a survival situation but according to the narrator is only effective 2 times a year (early spring and late winter) and works better with certain trees.

Rob also demonstrates how to use a root from the tree to support your canteen while the water flows into it.


  1. I saw this done once with tree taps. After the tap was ‘tapped’ in he put a 5 gal bucket underneath. In a day or 2 the bucket was over flowing. It was early winter. So I bought some tree taps; figure it would be easier than cutting a hole in the tree and then pushing a twig into it. And water came out faster with the tap
