Enhance Your Survival Food
If you can find a tree with large leaves, these can be very useful as makeshift plates in a survival situation. Sure, it’s not ideal, but they help keep the food off the ground, and provide a clean surface for the food to rest on.
Not to mention, Burdock leaves are exceptional for survival cooking. Just wrap the food in a few layers of burdock leaves, and start cooking. Much like tin foil, the leaves will insulate the food and keep it juicy while cooking.

Have A Natural Food Source
Certain leaves can be just as delicious for eating as they are for cooking. The key is to choose leaves that aren’t poisonous, and are safe for human consumption.
However, when you find edible leaves, you can enjoy them raw, can cook them, or can even use them to brew some tea.
Here are a couple videos of natural, edible leaves/plants you can use to help fill your stomach.
Certain leaves are very fibrous, and you can use these natural fibers to make cordage in an emergency situation.
This cordage (or rope) can be extremely useful in a variety of situations, such as building a shelter, tying a raft, or setting traps/snares to catch small game.

Start A Fire
Dry leaves can make excellent tinder if you need to start a fire. Plus, these leaves are often plentiful, giving you a huge supply.
