We cut down some healthy trembling aspen trees a couple of weeks ago. It then snowed, and snowed, and snowed!
This past weekend we finally had no snow and built a few stacks along one of our pathways. We put both pearl and blue oyster sawdust spawn on them.
The process is simple: put the stack on something to keep it off the ground, then, between each cut, put some sawdust spawn.
You need to cover the stack to ensure it doesn’t get nibbled on by critters and that it keeps moisture. It will take a year or more for the logs to colonize.
