Be on the lookout for downed hardwoods

A former member
Post #: 5
With the passing of Hurricane Irene there are a lot of fallen trees and branches.
Be on the lookout for some hardwoods so you can innoculate them with some shitake spores. A nice sized log is about 4-6" round and 4' long. You can always cut it to size.

The logs we innoculated last spring are putting out shitakes now especially with the wet weather.

Go to the website www.fungi.com Paul Stamets online store and info site to buy some dowels that are ready to
be drilled into hardwoods. The key to the timing of innoculation is finding wood that has fallen or was cut within 3 months prior to drilling. Autum and Spring are the optimum times to innoculate your logs.

Ash and oak are two good hardwoods.

Good luck with your scavenging.
