Vancouver Cyans
    #3244393 - 10/11/04 08:19 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

my friend and i spent 4 hours walking through a park on an island with an abundance of alder trees.. we found a few inactives but not a single cyanescen, it was raining today and has rained a TON in the last couple of weeks, so what did we do wrong? We got right down on our knees at certain points and moved all the foliage out of the way givving us a clear view of the soil; nothing; no pins, nothing.

any tips from vancouver hunters?

well you shouldnt be looking around alder TREES, you should be looking in alder WOODCHIPS.  not the soil.  thats probably the problem here.  go back to those parks and look for mulched/landscaped areas with woodchips (specifically, alder chips). 

good luck! :thumbup:

You could search a park that had 1000 alder trees and one that had 0, and find many more cyans in the later. Alder trees has absolutly no effect on cyan growth.

Alder mulch on the other hand.... Thats what your gonna be looking for. Alder mulch, as well as most hardwood mulch which cyans can fruit on, will be the light colored wood chips in beds at parks. Search these beds in highly shaded areas for best results, such as low trees, ferns, blackberries, ivy, ect....

Yes, they can, but rarely grow in forests. They grow in laid woodchips, like in flower beds with woodchips.
