Pine Mushrooms

Anyone ever hear anything about pine mushrooms... One of the only mushrooms that can't be cultivated by humans. Anyway, thought i'd take a drive up the nass vally this weekend possibly and pick some... I'll post the result if i get any. chanterelles also seam to be sprouting up all over the place here too, i'll see about getting some and posting. Few results with the actives here, but i've yet to find any cyan.

Well I know there are a lot of different mushrooms that live with pine but I have mostly heard of matsutake being referred as a 'pine mushroom'. I know that they are a finicky mychorrizal mushroom that typically appreciate old growth or older forests most.

I am pretty sure if they are in Washington and Oregon that BC would house some too. Try checking between 2200-2800 ft in elevation and stick to north side slopes at first.

Good luck!

Pine mushrooms that can't be cultivated....would probably be Amanita of some sort. They have a symbiotic relationship with the roots of pine trees. I've found quite a few this season.

Pine or Pin Mushrooms as nihill said are White Matsutake mushrooms.

I've been out picking them. This year has been good for picking Pine's but the prices are so low for selling them that not many people are out picking.

Here's some pics from Pine mushroom hunting, I took last year:
