* This list was compiled from trials and reports by the author, Pagony (1973), San Antonio (1981), Farr (1983), Gilbertson & Ryvarden (1986), and Chang & Miles (1989), Przybylowicz & Donoghue (1989), and Kruger (1992). Some of the listed tree species are probable candidates due to their clc:e affinities to species proven to be suitable for cultivation. I do not encourage the cutting of trees solely as a source of substrate for mushroom cultivation. The acquisition of wood materials from the forest should follow sustainable forest practices, and ide ally be a "waste" product generated from other activities.

**Some races of Ganodernia (G. oregonense & G. tsugae),Hypholoma(H. capnoides),Pleurotus{P. pulmonarius), Psilocybe (P. cyanescensandallies) andStropharia (5. ruguso-annulata) grow naturally on firs (i.e.Ab s species). ITT general, these conifer-degrading mushroom species can also be cultivated on most hardwoods. However, few mushroom species native to hardwoods will fruit on most conifers.
