Winter Root Digging
Tom Brown Jr.

On many of my winter survival classes students find it very difficult to dig many of the roots that have been frozen into the ground. There are two ways to get out a root in the winter. The first way is to take a hot rock and lay it over the area you wish to dig for a few hours, to soften the ground. Another way is to build a small fire over the frozen plant. If the frost line is exceedingly thick, it may take an hour or so. Sometimes, your root is even cooked by the time you get it out.
