Have y'all seen these from Fungi Perfecti?
We offer unique blends of spored oils, one for decomposing stumps of
conifers and one for hardwoods. These oils are designed as
environmentally friendly, biodegradable lubricants for chain-saws and
other wood cutting tools (dilute 1:10 with canola oil for best results).
As the wood is being cut, the spore-mass infused oil disperses mushroom
spores into the cut faces of wood, and upon germination of spores
accelerate the decomposition of stumps and brush. Stamets says, "Here is
an alternative for reducing fuel load in the forest to prevent forest
fires--don't rob the carbon bank by removing litter--saprophytize with
gourmet and medicinal fungi!"
