Better check with Fungi Perfecti on this.  Stumps that have been around that
long may already be pretty well infected with other fungi, making it harder
to get mushrooms started.
   I just removed a maple stump that was about 4 feet in diameter, with a
brush beater.  The stump was 20 years old and so punky I just dropped the
mower on it and reduced it to dust in about 30 seconds.  I had tried to
innoculate it with mushrooms one time but it had already started with other
fungi too much.

Lon, I think you just turned one of my biggest liabilities into an asset!  I
have 15 acres of land that was clear cut in 1992/3, acres of deep ravines
that are covered in savanna-type trees, and 40 acres of mature timber that
has been mauled by straight-line windstorms, heavy snow on green leaves and
general havoc by Nother Nature. I thought my alternatives to clear land were
dynamite, D7s or large bonfires every day of the year.

Thank you.  Now I better buy your book as a thank you. Brand new, too, not
used like I buy most of my books. God bless Abebooks.com!
