Azure outdoor growing/Alder chip supplier in Pacific NW
    #7621082 - 11/11/07 06:29 AM (6 years, 8 months ago)

Hello, I am looking for a supplier of Alder chips in the Pacific Northwest. Bulk preferably not 20lb bags for cooking. Any leads or ideas? Thanks

Welcome to shroomery. We try to keep questions of suppliers out of the cultivation forum, so it can concentrate on growing questions. To answer your question, Sawdust Supply in Seattle often has Alder chips, and always has alder sawdust. You can probably get them to deliver a dump truck load to your house.

I found a Alder supplier to send me 20lb bags of chips.They are kiln dried and have a smoky smell. I am assuming these will work. Am I wrong? Another thing it seemed some sawdust in the mix is a good thing for the fungi to spread easily.I read a post that mentioned pellets for wood stoves . Would these suffice and are they typically made out of hardwoods? We have and use a pellet stove as our primary heat source but the bags do not list the types of wood in the make up of the pellets. Thanks again for the help...

Fresh, non-kiln dried Alder is best. Use near equal amounts of sawdust and chips to generate your spawn. You want alder sawdust as well. The pellet fuel around here is from pine. Supplement with wheat bran and gypsum.

do a search on google under alder chips. you will get many sources. the chips can be small so dont forget to get chunks also. sometimes if you want the patch to last for years you can use log pieces for the bottom then put the chips and chunks on top. dont forget to scar the logs.

Are these chips not going to work? If you are sterilizing them fresh or kiln dried the wood is basically still in the same condition, devoid of all living organisms. This is then used as I understand it to spawn upon. If I was to make the bed outdoors now with these chips and add my spawn to it in a few months would this not work out? I guess my question is will mushrooms not grow at all on this wood? Thanks

Yea, it will grow, but you'll just have to hydrate it first. Don't put the chips out until you're ready to spawn, or other fungi will get a foothold in them first. I'd suggest growing out grains, and using those grains to inoculate as many supplemented sawdust/woodchip bags you can, allowing them to colonize over the winter. Use your colonized woodchip blocks to inoculate your freshly made and watered beds in the spring.

dont waste your money on shipping in alder
Use this, its doug fir and works great. You can get it in red, black, and brown. Most nurserys sell this stuff in bulk form. You just got to look at it and you will notice that it is by product from the lumber mills that is dyed these colors
