An Interesting Resource for Preppers

A while back, a prepper from East Texas sent me an email with information about a new resource that preppers may find interesting. Here is that email. Be sure to check out the link.

Riverwalker,

I have been following your blogs for about a year. My husband and I have just relocated to the Piney Woods of E. TX. On our 20 acre property we found an interesting tree--the Chinese Tallow.

In researching it, I found this document:

I don't know if anyone is actually using this tree as a resource...

Blessings and thanks for your information.

Thanks E.T. for the great info! (Please...no phone home jokes!)

Invasive is the word. They grow up from the roots and will make a thicket that looks like a wild plumb thicket at least 15 feet high.

I don't like the smell of the blooms.

I'm glad someone thinks they can find a use for it but I suspect that is sort of like people trying to find a use for kudzu. We are stuck with it so me may as well try to get something out of it.
