Matsutake Commercial Mushroom Harvests Now Underway in Oregon
    #6063369 - 09/15/06 02:25 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Matsutake mushrooms appear to be sprouting early this year in Oregon and California national forests. Forest Service officials believe this year’s matsutake harvest will yield quantities not seen since the early 1990s.

(CRESCENT) - Permits to harvest matsutake mushrooms for commercial purposes are now on sale on the Deschutes, Fremont-Winema, Umpqua and Willamette National Forests.

The permit is valid on all four national forest until the season ends November 11th, and is required for anyone picking the mushrooms for commercial purposes.

The types of individual matsutake commercial permits include:

• A minimum five-day permit for $35.

• Added days to the minimum five-day permit at $7/day.

• A 30-day half season permit for $100.

• A full season permit for $200.

Permits will be sold Monday through Friday from 7:45 AM to 4:30 PM at the Deschutes National Forest’s Crescent Ranger Station and from 7:45 AM to 4:00 PM at the Fremont-Winema National Forest’s Chemult Ranger Station.

Each permit will include a harvest map that must be kept whenever mushrooms are harvested, transported or sold.

Harvesters must view a slide show on forest safety, appropriate harvesting methods and camping in national forests before permits are issued at the two ranger stations.

Not all federal land is open to picking. These areas include campgrounds, wilderness areas, research natural areas, Crater Lake National Park, Newberry National Volcanic Monument and the H.J. Andrews Experimental Forest.

Forest Service officials have designated a campground exclusively for commercial harvesters near Crescent Lake Junction, just off Highway 58. The campground is called Little Odell Camp, and is the only place commercial harvesters can camp on the Crescent and Chemult Ranger Districts.

Camping fees can be paid anytime for one day up to the whole season, which lasts 62 days. The fee includes a refundable $25 cleaning deposit for each campsite.

The Chemult Ranger Station will also issue free personal-use matsutake mushroom permits from October 2nd to November 11th. It is the only ranger district that issues the permit, which has a limit of 15 mushrooms a day for up to 10 days in designated areas only.

Forest Service regulations require personal use mushrooms be cut length-wise to distinguish between mushrooms harvested for personal versus commercial use.

Federal and state law enforcement officers issued several citations last week for conducting illegal harvests on the Deschutes National Forest and confiscated hundreds of

pounds of matsutake mushrooms.

Violators of federal mushroom regulations can be punished by a $500 fine, imprisonment for up to six months, or both.

Current fire public use restrictions and matsutake harvest information can be obtained by contacting the following offices:

• Chemult Ranger Station, (Fremont-Winema National Forest), (541) 365-7001.

• Crescent Ranger Station, (Deschutes National Forest), (541) 433-3200.

• Willamette National Forest (541) 782-2283.

• Umpqua National Forest (541) 672-6601.

I have a friend who brings me these from time to time. While certainly very tasty and firm, I haven't noted the legendary taste described by many. Do you suppose there's a large difference between those that grow in the sand dunes along the coast {the kind I've eaten} and those that grow in the coastal and Cascade mountains?
