What's the best type of tree for winter shelter?

Answer Pine

A living pine tree is a ready-made shelter. The branches sprawl out horizontally and the cluster of needles on the branches create a lot of surface area often blocking snow and rain from reaching the base. The dead needles at the base of the trunk can be used as a bed keeping you off the cold ground. Pine needles also have amazing insulating properties therefore making it ideal for covering yourself or your built shelter to trap that precious warmth inside.
