Growing Shiitake Mushrooms in an Agroforestry Practice
Cultivating shiitake mushrooms represents an opportunity to utilize healthy low-grade and small-diameter trees thinned from woodlots as well as healthy branch-wood cut from the tops of harvested saw-timber trees. When the mushrooms are collected and marketed, the result is a relatively short-term payback for long-term management of wooded areas.
