Re: Mushroom picking
While chanterrelle picking may not harm future chanterelle production,
(indeed they seem to "pop" right off as if designed to be dragged away
by animals) I think the way I saw people "strip mining" for matsutakes on
old maid flats (near portland) several years ago could not possibly be
good for the environment. I suspect that matsutake picking is the
exception, and that as long as mushrooms are picked primarily above
ground no harm is done.
