Hi, I was introduced to truffle hunting last year and have found many oregon whites,but, no blacks yet the problem is finding a buyer for my white truffles. I live near Salem and am willing to travel for a guaranteed sale of my ten to twenty pounds depending on the price. Any ideas?

Well Budweiser and me went for our last hike today. The old Poodle is sure showing his age (Just Like Me). Buddy with cataracts and me with only one eye left, we managed just over 20 lbs. Mostly 3s and 4s. The frost last week did spur up some new ones though, cause we did manage almost 2 lbs of 1s. You won't fill your buckets here anymore this year , but they are still available. So don't hang up your buckets yet, you got a few picks left yet. Me. I am just tired. Go get them

Big ups to the community for a phenomenal season, especially Sam for bringing the sickest loads of Pines into the city, really clunky nuggets and perfect big buttons, along with amazing white chanterelles and monster rock hard lobsters. I was able to move product fresh from pickers directly to waiting restaurant clients, shortening that supply chain and ensuring that the picker gets paid a more fair price for the product. What a season! Personally pulled hundreds of pounds out of Squamish area, hauled massive loads out of the N. Shore, and found what may be the largest cauliflower on my record books, close to 15 lbs, a real monster. PIcked pines commercially for the first time, thanks to a generous old timber cruiser who showed me his high mountain patches, had some 100 pound days that really made the season, learned how hard it is hiking that weight down and out of the mountain. Being a buyer, restaurant wholesaler and a picker gave me a chance to develop some mad respect for all of you folks, the job is incredibly rewarding but requires some proper skills and hard strength to make a living doing it. I will be moving to the Ukee/Tofino area next year, back to my island roots, havin grown up in the Comox Valley area. Will be interested in bridging the gap between wild forest products from island communities and demand from the Vancouver restaurant scene, as I am already travelling back and forth for other work it just makes sense. Am always happy to guide/collaborate for harvesting operations, have a sharp eye and know how keep my mouth shut about the geographic locations involved :) Contact at alexander.mcnaughton@gmail.com Full buckets for 2014!

hi Keith, its been a rewarding year thus far. stepping along with our three little ones and seeing them grow up is wonderous treat. I trust all is well in your neck of the woods. I was thinking that inoculation with a chosen spore 'slurry' into preheated/ sterile soils could be a way to go. i gather the soil needs to be as clean & healthy as possible for the start. all airborne spores are so active & everywhere its a lightening fast window of opp/ before some other spores take connection and alter the wanted outcome. not much choice with forest parent trees (fungi inside/ outside root hairs) but in the nursery for planting trees there's opportunity. i would think that a natural seed has the genetic programing to allow any symbiotic relationship. worth a try as a small scale cost effective model. allow the end results to be a different type of marker. sounds kinda fun to try if the resources were available.

Hey Steve I read your question and it got me thinking about a personal experience...I had a great spot for matsutake in the cascades southwest of Mt hood that I had harvested, since the early 80's with good to excellent regular yearly harvests. I don't pick and sell mushrooms just eat 'em, so anyways, one fall I go back to my tried and true spot to find that over the summer and early fall the big trees were logged by helicopter. For many years after that I went each fall looking to see if the mushrooms had recovered yet since it was such a good area, but no. They never came back like before. I had hoped the mycelium would colonize the smaller trees but it didn't happen that way. It just died out and the last time I went in there after 22 years of waiting for the mushrooms to recover there were still no pines like there had been even though the forest seemed otherwise healthy. The logging was light, only the big trees were taken and the forest seemed to be otherwise fine but no mushrooms.

Thank you wild side. I hope you are doing well and had a good year. I have been wondering about the inoculation you are speaking about in terms of the genetics of the host trees. I know from some work we are doing with forest genomics and forest genetics that the cones selected for the seedlings are selected for timber yield. I have often wondered if the same genetic variations that produce the desired timber qualities and timber yields are also the same tree genetics that would enhance mushrooms. I read some studies in Europe where they attempted inoculation in chanterelles but without the genetic markers they weren't able to distinguish between the effects of inoculation or what may have been naturally occurring after planting. I wish I had some way of getting a cost effective genetic marker identification LOL It would be nice if the genetics of the trees for reforestation were able to meet both timber values and also create the abundance of mushrooms also.

Matsiman---thank you very much for sharing those links. This will be very helpful. If things go right with some of the work we are doing we will be doing some silvaculture planning for treatments this next year. We also will be looking at some stands at the restocking level of stocking densities and species composition in the replanting phase.. We have been working on research monitoring/demonstration plots to try and determine effects of forest fertilization on the yield. Hopefully we can make some more progress on this over the next few years.

years ago, did a mycology study: golden pacific chanti's grow all over and have bumper crops & time cycles. its about the competiton. also, inoculating baby trees in the tree farms for planters is a way of aiding chosen mushroom types. some amazing bumper crops occur in reforested hemlock even aged in coastal areas. check under fern canopy/.

Keith Hunter, Try going to this page, http://matsiman.com/formal_publications.htm , The first link there is the one below. I think Dave Pilze did a study on thinning and Chanties. You might find the paper at the USFS Pacific Northwest Research Station site. I'll see if I can find the pub when I have time. The theories I have are complicated to understand. Scientist I work with share some of the same theories. Basically ground disturbance and canopy closure are the keys. Ground disturbance is a constant. When you read the paper, you will see guidelines for not damaging ectomycological fungi during management activities. Canopy closure can vary depending on environmental conditions, site specific. In other words, a 30% canopy closure might be appropriate on one site, where 90% is needed on another. Matsiman

Andy for some reason I cannot access that link you shared. I really do appreciate this discussion about the impacts of logging on mushrooms. One of the challenges we have been trying to work on is that after a block is logged where we know there were chanterelles (and pines) and the stand is replanted, what practices need to be in place to insure that the stand can regenerate not only the trees but also the mushrooms. I keep thinking the previous stand structures (spacing, canopy density, etc) could be recreated by early stage species selection in the restocking, as well as potentially early stage thinning and/or pruning. I have read from different studies that thinning did have at least a short term effect of the production of chanterelles but have not been able to locate any longer term studies of the effects after the thinning. We also are looking into the effects of forest fertilization on mushroom production.

Hey Steve that's a good question, maybe too much for here and I've wondered about that for many years myself. Bottom line; At a minimum it cant be good for the mushrooms to cut down the mother trees but how bad is it??. The usfs has been thinning younger stands for a while now and I don't find mushrooms in those locations like I used to.

That's interesting. I'm wondering about the impact on all mushrooms too, not just matsutake as well as the removal of the oldest trees weather old growth OR large second growth or survivors as I call them, the trees that were not cut 100-125 yrs ago when the biggest ones were logged. Some stands of second growth or the unlogged trees from back then have grown quite large and are the mature mother trees now.

Not that I like any of the shenanigans any better than the next picker. But I have to ask WHY does everyone always single out Joe Chung as the bad guy? There are a lot more players out there. BTW....Thanks for listing the break down for all the grades. I am sure a lot of "NEW" picker are not sure how all this plays out......... and ..Whatever happened to the $10 dollar spread between #1's and #5's. Remember that?... Best case scenario would be that all station buyers would, ONE. Get a set amount of money for the season 'PLUS' a commission. TWO. That there would only be a limited amount of buyers in each local. THREE. that each exporter would only be allowed one buyer for that particular town or area. Let the buyer earn the right to work in that capacity. Maybe it could be based on past productivity. Anyhow this season is all but done.... Merry Christmas. :)

Hello People..... This thing about who has the best (Highest) price., has nothing to do with the dollar value of # 1's. It is all about the grading,...... I'll say it again.... "It's all about the grading." At this time of the season you will make your best money on your #3's.... So why rush off to a buyer paying "quote" top price for number #1's, only to have all of what you worked so hard for down graded. DO THE MATH ...people. It sure not hard for a smart buyer to recoup what is lost on #1.... buy calling it a #2.. etc. IIf this keeps up and all the buyers are frozen out because of "picker greed" next year we will not see anything above $4.00 for the whole season...... OH! and remember, they are your mushrooms until you except the money..... so question the grading.

Mission, If you want to find mushrooms then go into the forest and look on the ground beside older fir trees. Use a stick to move the ferns and salal so that they can be seen. I hope this helps.

hi, i had a question. im a new personal picker who found my first flush of matsutaki. I picked the spot clean of all the ones I could find. I want to know when I should go back and look for new ones, or is that all i will find there this year. Also, the area is very promising for many more in other patches as I believe they are just starting here, I dont know of any buyers in my area, closest is 100 miles or so. They are yummy but I want to make some $$. anysuggestions?

Well i went out at 3:30 pm on wednesday and checked a little spot and there were brand new buttons breaking through the duff ...all i could see was the cracks and about an inch down new buttons ... Was suprised a bit for sure and i wonder how many other areas are getting a new pop. Wednesday night it snowed so i might not find out unless it melts ....this time of year those buttons are usually quite fair size underneath and these were all nice. come on snow melt so i can go for two more hikes ..tomorrow firewood ..good luck full buckets ...

Brenda, I apologize for the person using your name. This person has harassed the board on and off for a couple months. This isn't the only place they cause concern.

They evidently don't like people for some reason.

They made a couple posts earlier, I deleted them. Both posts had to do with one of our valued visitors, a consistent target of this person. He referred to him in one post, and used his name as his own in another. I happen to know this person is in the hospital 2 states away unable to walk, yet posted a price in CJ?

I will take care of the problem, but am dealing with a couple different venues to gather the info I need. I may need to change web hosts to accomplish the goal. Please don't let this person upset you. That is their goal. I will publish their name to this board when I'm ready.

Don't really want to go that far, but they were advised to stop or that would happen. They laid low for awhile and then started again using the name Lolly for awhile and then several others. Now using current users names.

The best way to clear a post that isn't yours, DON'T RESPOND ON THE BOARD, is to email me if I don't spot the post and delete it.

Everybody please be patient. Thanks, Matsiman

Carla, you are very correct. It is tough to sell mushrooms into an area that is loaded with pickers. They are all undercutting each other. It takes a big investment to ship them far away. Most pickers would rather pick in the forest than deal in the city with the traffic jams and pollution and the regulations.

I've even been flagged over by them on my way down. But I'm sure Bill would give you a decent price for you nice tight buttons. He's actually a good guy.

If I were the buyer, and I have been one, I would never buy another shroom from you. You have no respect for the mushrooms or the person who handed you money the last time. Has a lot to do with self respect.
