    Is there any Chaga to be found in Illinois? I always thought it was found a lot farther North.

    The closest I've found it is Traverse City, Michigan. I actually managed to knock it off the tree with my foot, as it was low enough. My friend travels to Wisconsin/U.P. with a ladder and a saw to harvest it. If you're into starting fires with primitive tools, it works great for that. I actually burn it for incense from time to time as it has something of a nice "woody" smell.
