Indeed, foretsry plantations are very good. Acid soils, lots of good organic
material on the ground. And of course mossy patches of ground, especially
good for Cantharellus.

I believe that a Scottich company picks commercially upwards of 100 species
in this kind of woodland in the same kind of plantation. Unfortunately, it
would apear that they all get sold in London and Paris.
