Forest farming of mushrooms

I have a few questions below:
  • Has anyone experimented with quaking aspen totems for oyster mushrooms? Cottonwood and poplar are mentioned so it seems that quaking aspen would be a safe bet.
  • Fresh Beech logs are recommended for Hericium inoculation, but most of our beech is infected with the beech bark disease. How will this affect the process?
  • Is there a potential conflict with farming Hericium in an active sugar bush?
  • For how many years should I expect the totems to produce?

sap bags exclusively from the video from Michael Farrell from 2014.

We really want to get our hands on about 50 of the bags from the video.
Michael says in the video they are the bags used in the manufacture of soda syrup which comes in a box and mixes with water and CO2. A bar or restaurant serves soda pop from it. Carbonated soda.
We aren't having any luck locating this particular bag.
Can you help? Can you ask Michael Farrell? I see he has left Cornell.
