what kind of tree?
    #442503 - 10/30/01 11:43 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

I'm wanting to innoculate some logs and stumps on my property with Oyster Mushrooms. Problem is that 90% of my land is covered in Redwood, will they grow in it? There are other trees, but the closest thing to live oak is tan oak, would that do? Other trees include douglas fir, madrone, pine, and bay laurel.
Can anyone recommend an exellent edible mushroom that can be cultivated off Redwood?

Redwood is not good. Oak is good.
"Most of the mushroom varieties grow best on newly cut hardwood or semi-hardwoods. A list of commonly used wood is included. (Most cannot be grown on conifers, including Pine, Fir, Cypress, Juniper, Cedar, Redwood, and Eucalyptus.) "

In the wild(here in the pacific northwest), I see oysters(Pleurotus ostreatus) fruiting on mainly live oak or tan oak logs. I've even seen them fruit off of laurel. In my front yard, they fruited off of birch.
