- A study on the effects of harvesting on chanterelle productivity
in Mt. Hood National Forest, Oregon. Abstract in MSA Newsletter
- ABSTRACT: The choice edible Cantharellus cibarius,
ectomycorrhizal with various forest trees, is an economically
significant secondary forest product. In 1986 the Oregon Mycological
Society (helped by the USDA Forest Service) initiated a ten-year
study on whether or not chanterelle harvesting would adversely
affect productivity or the growth of the mycorrhizal partners.
Ten study plots were established in a 100-year old hemlock-Douglas
fir stand in the buffer zone of Mt Hood's Bull Run watershed.
Since 1986, new chanterelles have been flagged by numbered
skewers and mapped by triangulation with the dimensions of
each fruiting body recorded every two weeks through the fruiting
season. Since 1989 six of the ten plots have been harvested
with chanterelles removed by cutting (3 plots) or pulling
(3 plots). Four plots (in which no chanterelle removal is
permitted) serve as controls. Three years of harvesting data
indicate that picking chanterelles does not have an adverse
impact on subsequent chanterelle productivity over the short
term. Additional observations suggest that canopy closure,
annual mean temperature, precipitation, and the presence of
coarse woody debris may be more significant in the productivity
of a given chanterelle site. (See also Projects: Chanterelles)]
