Forest farming of mushrooms
- 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?
