Re: Where is the Chaga?

Thanks for the reply's guys!

Well I know what I'm doing this weekend, hunting down some chaga. I don't want anyone worried about me taking their hunting spots for chaga or any other mushroom. In fact I would like to plant spores during my hunts as long as it doesn't have a negative impact on the trees or environment . That way I can have my own supply of them.

Thanks Jochs for the area's where certain birches grow. This will give me a great starting point of where to hunt chaga's. As for their edibility I've read they taste like a mild vanilla when made into a tea. A chunk about the size of your fist can make 5 or 6 batches of tea. After making the tea you can dry it out and put it into alcohol to absorb the other nutrients that can't be activated with a tea. It is the king of medicinal mushrooms and its queen is reishi the other top medicinal mushroom.

I will be posting what I find here and how I found them for a reference to anyone interested. Thanks again I will be keeping you guys posted!
