WARNING SPAMMERS: To reply to author, remove the seedling tree, period.

Just returned from a soggy but enjoyable forage with the North American
Truffling Society to Tillamook County, Oregon. In a bog-like area near
Hebo, Oregon found examples of:

Hydnotrya sps., possibly H. cubispora
Rhizopogon sps, probably R. vinicolor and ?
Macowanites sps.
Elaphomyces granulatus
possible Martella sps, very immature

Then went to Cape Lookout area and found:

Martellia vesiculosa?
Alpova diplophloeus, found in gravel some 30 feet from the nearest Red
alder. Surprising quantities.
Hypomyces lactifluorum, abundant
rotting Laetiporus sulphureus
Cantharellus aurora-boreallis (well predated upon by local Homo sps.)
Russula brevipes
Lactarius sps.
Russula sps.
Scleroderma sps., some of the largest I've seen, will be shown at OMS
Mushroom Show on Oct. 12 at Tigard Armory, 3200 Oak, Tigard, OR
Boletus edulis, not very wormy, but past prime. Did salvage the stems by
removing the caps, slicing thin, and squeezing as much water as possible
out of ceps steaks by pushing down hard between very absorbent paper
towels. Anyone else salvage soggy ceps using this method?

Am now off to Washington to harvest Tuber gibbosum in a newly discovered,
naturally inoculated 20-acre patch plantation.
