Anyone know of any birch forests??????
Is there any Chaga to be found in Illinois? I always thought it was found a lot farther North.
Does chaga grow in Missouri and what uses can you use them for
I found Chaga in wisc...... anywhere there are birch trees it can be found....
I usually just make tea out of it... this year I made some vodka and it was delicious!
How do u harvest chaga. Saw????
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.
