HARD WOOD
    #2268878 - 01/24/04 07:23 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Around these parts the spring sugar run is about to start, so you know what that means: tapping maples and cutting oak/alder for outdoor cultivation. I was planning on doing this. I was planning on cutting everything over 4" diameter into six foot sections and plugging them. I want to turn smaller pieces of wood into foot long logs for maitake (to be buried) and everything else to be chipped into woodchips.

But, how long are woodchips fresh?

Wood chips: If you have a way to dry them, they will keep for a relatively long time. If you cannot dry them they will get alot of growth from various ascomycetes that are after the easy sugars. If you are going to colonize with something like Stopharia this will not make too much of a difference becuase it competes well with "trashy" fungi.

As for your logs I would suggest cutting them into four ft sections just because they are easier to manipulate. I killed myself one spring carrying aroung these big ass six foot logs and digging trenches for them.

BTW where in the country are you.
