No clue. What happened to birch? Stamets mentioned birch, but Anno would have to comment on spruce.

Yes, and a bit of straw in the mix seems to
be ok too. Say 10% straw, 90% chips. Worked for
me.

Anno do you have GGMM ? as some one said theres a wood guide in there.
I have a load of cherry wood (about 5 tons) so i was wondering if its
a usebal hardwood ? I really should get that book.

IMO I would avoid cherry . Cherry is the only tree that is known to kill itself due the output of cynanide compounds ( rare occurrence ). Mushrooms are known to collect and store some toxins and while I do not know if they are capable of breaking down the CN bond I would not want to find out the hard way .

Kill itself? I know the leaves can be poionus to animals because the compound (c-c-c-......c---n) can break into hydrogen cyanide when mixed with HCl in the stomach, but how does it kill the tree, itself?

Thanks,

CN deprives the plant of oxygen needed in photosyntheis . I will see if I can find the refernce itself . The parameters were that the trees were downhill from the rest of the orchard and got an over abundance of the CN compound . The CN in cherry for the sake of discussion is a cyanongenetic glycoside .
