A lot of people would like to know the answer to that question :-) 
About 20 years ago, an member of the San Francisco Mycology Society
traveled the foothills of California's Sierra Nevada mountains
attempting to inoculate various tree roots with both black and white
truffles.  He work on this project for years with no luck...not even a
pea size truffle grew.  I don't know if anyone is continuing with this might try contacting the society.
