I am harvesting shiitake mushroom logs with Steve Gabriel of AgroForestry Solutions. We’re looking for woodlots of Oak, Sugar Maple, or Beach.
Your help finding forest owners seeking sustainably managed woodlots is appreciated. Here’s the announcement for passing on:
Local mushroom farmers seeking woods comprised of small diameter (4″ – 10″) trees to harvest for log mushroom cultivation.
We will only cut if the activity improves your forest. In exchange for access to your trees, we will provide a free GPS property map and assessment of your wood’s health, along with recommendations for ecologically sustainable management. Strategic thinning of young trees is beneficial to forest health. If your woods have Oak, Sugar Maple, or Beach, our intervention may also benefit biodiversity and long-term timber value.
We have years of experience managing small woodlots, trained in chainsaw safety, and carry our own insurance.
Access to your woodlot via 4X4 truck is essential. Forests in eastern Schuyler and western Tompkins counties are preferred.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (607)342-2825 to discuss further.
