If you are out foraging and see white birch tree check for Chaga.With people not being able to get their cancer treatments you may be able to help someone..

just a FYI. youbdont want to be harvested chaga wial the tree is in grow stage. so what im saying is only harvest chaga during the dormant winter months. if u harvest now you have a good chance of killing that tree. it will bleed to death

Cedar.I agree somewhat with what you say.Obviosly there is Birch Sap.I harvest anything and everything sustainably most often from my own property.I love and cherish every living thing..If I had to cut the most expensive tree on my property to save one life or make it bearable I would cut it tonight in the dark..People are in need now.Some things actually need to be sacraficed.
Peace

Your feeling in the medicinal qualities of Chaga is interesting.

Sounds lovely, @geogymn !

@hoblershang , congrats! Since we've never foraged [or even tried] them before, I'm interested to know how you prepared and what you thought of your first harvest? We still haven't checked our ostrich fern spot, but really hope to this weekend or early next week. Not even sure if it will be too late by then, but keeping fingers crossed!

As far as ramps, we delivered pesto to the land owners and have another harvesting trip planned. Their patches are huge and mature at slightly different times according to whether they're along the flat land or on the hills. The overwhelming majority is still untouched, and after last year's harvest, the ramps have noticeably spread. Feeling happy that our care in harvesting has seemed to pay off for the environment as a whole there.

You seem to be in tuned into the land ethnic ideology. Kudos!

I'm like a kid in a candy store when foraging for anything. I get very excited n rub my hands together n laugh. We saute are fiddleheads in butter n garlic paste. For 10 minutes then salt. Same for morels. I can never have enough. I'll eat a pan of morels ever day if I can find enough lol.
