Here are 3 makeshift shelter designs made from plain tree branches, from our friends at Survival Life.
Lean-to Survival Shelter
A-frame Survival Shelter
Teepee Survival Shelter
Building a teepee survival shelter from tree branches is also an option, assuming you have more time in your hands. Find a slim tree trunk, which you can use as the center support; then, create a cone-shaped structure using branches. If there are no slender trees around, make a stand-alone teepee instead. Just look for three long, sturdy, pole-like branches to use as the foundation. Use thin branches, leaves, or twigs to cover your teepee.
So, those are 3 pretty great makeshift survival shelter designs! All you need to do is remember how to make them, and start gathering some tree branches!
Some things to remember when making these are that you should avoid building your shelter on drier ground where no rainwater can collect, such as a ditch or anywhere damp, don't use any branches that are too dry or rotten as they can easily break, and make sure you don't have pokey bits of the branches sticking out everywhere. You don't want to be getting stabbed all the time when you're trying to sleep.
